Receiving the diagnosis that I had Multiple Sclerosis in 2004 was like piercing a dagger in my heart. I was at the highlight of my life. I was a young attorney and thought this was the demise of my legal career. I suspected for many years that I had it because of the “weird symptoms.” I went from not being able to drive because I couldn’t see due to the blurred vision, not walking normally, dragging my left leg, not being able to feel my legs when waking up, not being able to taste, having panic attacks, depression and anxiety, among other symptoms. These symptoms can bring despair, and they have certainly done so for me in the past. However, having multiple sclerosis should not give anyone permission to stay “sick!” It does not serve you stay there and have this diagnosis consume your being.
I say I have MS because the lesions are on the x-ray, but I also say it doesn’t have me. Switch your mindset and only feed yourself with positive energy, gratitude and love. Worrying about what can happen when it hasn’t happened only exacerbates the condition because the Universe is paying attention. In other words, energy flows where focus goes. Send your energy towards healing.
