About

images (6)Hello! My name is Alyssa! I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 18 years ago when I was only 19 years old. I started my blog to be able to help others that are battling with chronic illnesses and try to explain how I have managed to cope with what could be a debilitating illness with a positive mind! Living with the ups and downs of MS can be challenging, but the power of the mind can beat anything thrown at us. I am only here to give my personal experiences not any kind of treatments or a diagnosis. I really want to be able to inform others about chronic illnesses and also try be a helping hand for those that need it!Love 2

  1. One of my aunts suffered through MS and it was hard to see the kind of struggle she went through some days. But she always had a positive outlook and didn’t let the rest of us see how badly it was affecting her. I can’t help but respect those that go through this.

    • If you do not mind me asking, how long has your aunt had MS? There are definitely hard days, but I refuse to allow this illness to take over my life. The past few weeks have been a little harder dealing with the pain issues. It is a struggle dealing with this illness, but I have to force myself to believe I can handle it and hold onto positive thoughts as much as I can!

  2. From what I recall she had it for quite a while. I don’t remember exactly as she passed away when I was still a teenager. I’m 38 now and still remember her fondly, mostly because while we knew she had it she didn’t let it get to her as much. Very strong-willed woman, but as far back as I can remember she struggled with it. Like I said though, her will was about as strong as iron and didn’t bend.

    • Thank you so much for sharing this about your aunt! She definitely sounds like she was an amazing woman! I believe very strongly it is best to never allow anything to keep us down too long. MS has tried for years to make me suffer, but I keep fighting back. I have honestly had it for half of my life. I was diagnosed at age 18 and now I am 36.

  3. Thank you so much Alyssa for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments! You are right when you say it’s mind over matter. Just sometimes you need to take a breather, so feel free to drop around my blog, I’m not very fast in replying to comments but I do read them! Take care!
