We went to visit one of our very dear friends in the hospital last night which prompted me to consider my own health issues. Although this serious disease plagues me on a daily basis, I have only been admitted to an actual hospital 2 times in over 23 years with the first time being just a few months after being initially diagnosed with MS when I contracted pneumonia. The second time I ended up in the hospital was from a severe reaction to Tysabri, one of the disease modifying drugs which attacked my hemoglobin levels. Although I'm a great patient after so many years of being poked and prodded, I do everything in my power to stay as healthy as possible so as to avoid both doctor visits and hospital stays. Although it's far from perfect, my health challenges are minor compared to so many others and for that I am eternally grateful.
Hello World. This is a blog we created to give any one affected by MS in any way a constructive way to communicate with others going through the same challenges.
