If you have multiple sclerosis (MS) or know someone who does, you know that the condition is a chronic, degenerative disease affecting the nervous system. Globally, the incidence of this disease has been rising (not just because doctors are getting better at diagnosing it), and the condition’s causes are not well understood.

Beating Multiple Sclerosis before it Beats You

Beating Multiple Sclerosis before it Beats You Tagged with:

Multiple sclerosis is a difficult disease to be diagnosed with at a young age. You don’t know when it will take its full toll on you, if ever. I was diagnosed almost 3 years ago at the age of 22. Even till this day, not a lot of people know I have the disease. I have relapsing remitting, so I rarely show signs of the condition, and when I do have symptoms I try to keep them to myself and hide them the best that I can. It isn’t that I’m insecure of having the condition; it’s that I don’t want anyone to have pity on me or treat me any different than before.
