Several months ago, I was in the middle of being interviewed by my friend’s son and his classmate on the topic of multiple sclerosis. They were working on a project for their 7th grade Life Science class and I was happy to help them get extra credit for interviewing someone with MS. I was very impressed by their prep work and research that they had obviously done before we met up. I gave them answers to all of their questions until one blew me away. “Do you still have MS?” one of the boys asked. Wow, what a great question!
The answer is yes; I still have MS. I finished my second round of my low-dose chemo treatment in May, but that wasn’t a cure. However, this treatment has seemed to have stopped the progression for now. (I will follow up on this once I get my MRI done.) I often tell people that I am feeling great, which is the truth. But, so much damage has been done over the last 14 years that compared to what I have felt like before I do feel great! I’ve learned to compensate for certain things and that it’s ok to have time to relax. What a blessing it is to be able to have people notice that although I have this disease, I can still carry on in my day-to-day life. It is all because the Lord provides and I can be joyful resting in His grace.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13
