NoMoreSclerosis is an extension of my testimony of my experience, both physically and spiritually, with multiple sclerosis. I say physically and spiritually because it entails both counterparts.
Physically, the autoimmune disease, scarred my immune system. What happened? Well, my optic nerves, my brain and my spine has been scarred. It’s nerve covering (myelin) has borne scars. These scars cause me to talk funny, walk quirky and sometimes my thought process has the potential to be limited. Then there is the spiritual component. How many of us have been scarred by psychological events that caused us to walk clumsy into our destiny? Maybe what you have been through causes you to rethink what is possible through faith. Last but not least, is your vision compromised by what you have seen happen to you in the past? That, my dear, is what I call, spiritual multiple sclerosis.
When was I diagnosed? Well, it was my third wedding anniversary and I was excited to go home and spend it with my husband. Before the festivities started, I had to go to the optometrist because I had been having eye problems and really bad headaches. I didn’t drive to work so my parents were picking me up because my husband was on his job.
I sat in the chair and the eye doctor asked me to read the bottom line of the eye graph. There were two lines of each segment on the eye graph. I asked, “Why is there two of the same size lines? I see a bottom row but I see two lines at the bottom, not one.” I was seeing double, exactly how I viewed the cars on top of each other when I used to drive.
My doctor flipped through the forms I had completed and asked, “How long have you had these bad headaches?” I answered that I had these headaches for months along with the double vision. She named a few other things and I agreed with all of her statements. She told me she could not prescribe a lens for me and I need to go see my doctor IMMEDIATELY.
I took her advice and months later they confirmed the diagnosis. They told me basically that I had an unknown disease with an unknown cure. Through the diagnosis, I grew to understand that I had a greater PROGNOSIS. No matter what my physical body was experiencing, I was going to be victorious. You can be the same way, walking in victory.
