Some of you may know me for my easy going nature, maybe even submissive, but not everyone has witnessed my feisty side. When someone tells me that it can't be done I show them I can!
This reminds me of Audrey's birth and how the doctor told me that he didn't think I could do it. I showed him!!! Audrey was out in two pushes. No one can tell me what I can or can't do!
This is the attitude that has been building in me the last couple of days. I will not let this thing take me! My neurologist says there are meds that I can go on that will make me sick for a couple days and then a couple days later I will have to take them again. They only decrease symptoms by 30% and over all patients decline at about the same rate compared to not having them. That is the only option he gave me and that is not what I want!
After spending only a short time research MS on the internet, I have found several options that seem to help and even eradicate all symptoms! Diet is big! Overall health is even bigger!
One theory (in short) is that some food proteins can bind with a bacteria in my gut and leak into by blood. This super bacteria is very similar in composition to mylan sheath. My immune system gets confused and attacks both. So I am now eating no legumes, gluten, dairy or sugar. Basically it is a paleolithic diet, what hunters and gatherers would eat. So far my determination to keep this disease at bay has helped me to do it.
I am determined to do all I can to be as healthy as I can, for me and my family!
