    MS and Other Autoimmune Disease

    I have MS (multiple sclerosis) and was wondering if anyone else here has MS or another autoimmune disease.

    I was diagnosed three years ago. I'd been having some weakness in my legs, but I was convinced it was in my head and I just needed to exercise more. Then one morning I woke up and couldn't walk at all. I received my diagnosis soon after.

    After a lot of physical therapy, medication, and time, I've reached a remission! I can do almost everything I was able to before. I still drive my car with hand controls because my legs can spasm unpredictably, and I keep my wheelchair in my van "just in case." But it is so nice to be healthy and I'll never take it for granted again!

    There isn't a cure for MS, and it's likely I'll eventually relapse again.

    My spiritual experience with this journey has been amazing. I, a 26 year old married woman, watched women older than me cleaning my house and cooking for my husband and me. It was heartwarming; it was terribly humbling.

    You know what's funny? I've never felt the urge to pray for healing. In fact, I am just so filled with gratitude, because God has provided me with every earthly and spiritual tool to get through this to his glory. I'm surrounded by Christian family and friends, full of prayerful, emotional, and practical support. I am so blessed to have experienced what I did, and then get to enjoy this season of good health! I do pray I put it to productive use, though!

    Do you have an autoimmune disease or a chronic illness? Know someone who does?

    Hi Listener, I'm very sorry to hear about your MS, but your attitude about it is tremendous. If you'd like me to, I'd be happy to pray for you.

    You asked about autoimmune diseases. Our 17 yr old son, Jonathan, has a terrible one, Lyme Disease. Did you want to talk about it? If so, I'd be happy to as I'm on a bit of a mission to get the word out about how to recognize it, and what to do if you find that you're infected (because it's everywhere in the world now :().

    Thanks! Just let me know :)

    In Christ,
    David
    Matthew 5
    16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

    Matthew 7
    12 However you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

    1 Corinthians 13
    1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

    1 Peter 3
    15 Sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.
