I know to much about sickness for someone so young, Mom always tells me when I call her to keep her updated on how I am doing.  I was diagnosed with MS, (Multiple Sclerosis) just about eighteen months ago, when I was still in highscool, my body began betraying me, I was falling unable to do the things I had taken for granted all my life, even walking became a struggle.  I knew something was wrong, and when I was taking to the specialists, and tests were ran the liasions showed MS, MS varies in the degrees of severity and though they do not believe the type of MS I have is fatal, it certainly is life altering, and I have had to learn to adjust to this new life, a life with a disease that was slowly taking my feedoms away from me, but I refused to give into the MS, I was not going to let my life put on pause because of this, instead I am going to live my life to the fullest, I have just finished my first year in college, and did quite well depsite this, and I know that is only through the grace of God.

I am grateful for the life I lead, grateful for my family and my friends the ones who have been with me through this, telling me that I am going to get through this, and mostly I am grateful for the Lord.

Having MS is certainly no walk in the park, and I have to be careful in so many ways, but I have learned to listen to what my body is telling me, and have learned to fly on broken wings, my life is not a picnic, but its not a circle of negativity either, and I am grateful for the life I have, I try not to dwell on what I don't have and instead focus on the wonderful gifts the Lord has bestowed on me...

To Be Continued
