I was diagnosed with MS about 4 years ago after an unexpected case of Bells Palsy. I'm 32 years old now, and I guess its time to stop living in denial that I have MS.
I'm in flare up mode right now, and the pain and fatigue levels are through the roof. Unfortunately, I don't have insurance, so I am trying to just suffer through. I don't know what else I can do.
I make too much for medicare/medicaid, but not enough to pay for treatment.
To make matters more fun, everyone in my life tries to "fix" me if I ever mention the MS. One friend went grain free for her own diet a year ago and is convinced that I have MS because I don't eat like her. Another tells me I don't have enough faith or I would be healed.
I DO have faith. That's what is so frustrating. I pray and pray, move and eat as best I can, and I still hurt. I'm so tired of everyone acting like this is my fault.
I'm on the verge of tears sitting here. I just don't know where to go from here.View Thread
