About Positively Alyssa

I was diagnosed 16 years ago, when I was only 19 years old, with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I had gone to my eye doctor because I had lost vision in my left eye. Prior to my appointment, I had prepared myself to have the doctor confirm that I would be blind in my left eye and that was all. Never in a million years did I expect to hear the doctor tell me that after consulting with his colleagues, that I need to go for an MRI that day because they were thinking that with my symptoms that I had MS. Just a couple hours later I went to get the life altering MRI. I remember that phone call like it was yesterday. My eye doctor called me from his home at 9:30 at night to confirm what they suspected, I in fact had MS. He immediately referred me to a specialist he knew and I was able to get in to see him that same week. Luckily, after a round of steroids, my vision came back in my eye just leaving me with leg pain that would continue to be part of my life. Through the years I have tried numerous different medications that are meant to slow the progression of the disease down. I was never good at the injections and it wasn't because of the needle, it was because the medication burned like fire going in. Still after all these years I still go through my battles of denial, anger, frustration and sadness. However, I have always said that I would NEVER allow MS to control my life but I would control the disease. For the most part, I have been pretty successful with that. I mean we all have our bad days but it doesn't make the situation any better. With this blog I am hoping that with my experiences, endless amounts of research and a powerful fight i me that I can not only help others going through this but that I can learn from others as well. Living with the ups and downs of MS can be challenging but the power of the mind can beat anything that is thrown our way!

    • Thank you! My book will be out someday, it just might be a few years! It seems to take forever! I did have several pages written but then wanted to make some changes. It has and always will be my goal! Writing has done so much for me and I think the book I want to write, will be pretty good. It is loosely based on a true story:)!

    Oh my goodness, I just saw this! So, long story but I had to change from Robyn’s Reflections to my new page, hillaryrobyn. I messed up big time, but I was able to transfer everything over so it’s okay.

    Anyway, thank you so much for nominating me, Alyssa! I’m not sure how it works now that I’ve changed everything, but I’ll follow the rules anyway. 🙂

    I think you should definitely write a book! You’re a great writer and I would love to read whatever you write.
