My battle with Multiple Sclerosis is constant and daily. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It seems to have a personality all of its own and it's not a very nice one. It is always thinking up new ways to make my life as difficult as possible and to take from me everything I love and enjoy. I have been diagnosed with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis by my neurologist after a MRI revealed scaring on my brain. My symptoms are regular and daily and include such things as frequent falls, which I have little or no warning for. My balance is gone and it's impossible to walk or get from a to b without some form of assistance. whether it be a walker, a wheelchair, a motorised scooter or just simply having someone to help me on my left hand side by locking arms and then I will have my walking stick or cane on my right.
I made a promise or pact with a decision sometime ago that I would try and carry on with my life the best I could. I didn't want to sit at home and cry about it although I must admit, sometimes it gets the better of me and I feel like doing just that. Life is good and as I do love photography my photography career seems to be progressing in its own right and not because of sympathy for me and my MS. This I feel is great and very important and I sincerely thank everyone for their help and understanding for me and my MS and especially their patience.
