I was diagnosed with MS in November 1981, right after turning 24 years old. At Duke University Medical Center in Durham, I sat with my mother and mother-in-law and listened as a NeuroSurgeon explained my diagnoses. He also explained to me that, within the next 5 years, I WOULD BECOME totally confined to a wheelchair.
I sit here today, 52 years old and I've not spent a single day in a wheelchair. In fact, I visited my Neurologist yesterday and he informed me that the MRI I had done a couple of weeks ago not advanced any, or I had no more lesions on my brain than in 2008!!!!!!!!
I have walked around for 2 days now with a huge smile on my face and knowing that God so loves me, just as I do Him. He has protected and shielded my body from any further lesions that cause more loss of myelin from my nerves. YAY! Yippee!! I am so Thankful and so Excited. I knew exactly where to come to let my sweet friends know just how Blessed I know I am! I am SO Thankful for this wonderful news. I have absolutely NO doubt in my feeble little mind that The Lord has literally 'carried me in His hands' since my diagnosis. He deserves the praise and the glory of this wonderful news I just received and HE is getting the praise and glory. It is something that I could NOT do! HE can do it and HE HAS done it!! 29 years after my diagnosis, I get this wonderful news and I've totally savored it!! I am SO very Thankful for this precious Blessing. I feel so unworthy of such an amazing gift... So many others need blessings too...
I've known all my life that I was "special" (well, we all are to parents!!), however it was proven to me yesterday. My God has shielded me from any further progression of MS and the lesions that cause so much damage in my body. God loves me. I am Blessed. I am Special...... I am Thankful, SO Thankful!
I simply wanted to share this with my friends right here!! This place is where I knew to come to share this wonderfully amazing news!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post.
Extremely Blessed and even more Grateful and Thankful for it ~
PS,, I truly don't know if I've put this in the proper location!! I'm so sorry. There wasn't a section for Blessings ~ almost Miracles!! I don't just believe in Miracles. I depend on them...
