I finally went to the doctor the last time I had gotten really sick. The doctor came in and said that I had M.S. I didn’t know much about M.S. I know it stands for Multiple Sclerosis. It attacks the muscles and the central nervous system. A lot of people end up in wheelchairs. A lot of people end up on walkers. It progresses as you get older. First I was angry. At first, I was upset and I didn’t understand. Why me? I had just had a birthday in December. I had just turned 30. So, there were some feelings there like, “Why Lord? Why did you allow this to happen to me? Within 48 hours of being at the hospital, they confirmed that I had three lesions, two lesions on my brain and one lesion on my cervical spine.

During the tests I felt a sense of comfort that I had never felt; like everything was going to be okay. Although, it was very overwhelming. I was very scared but I had just felt the presence of the Lord like I had never felt before. It was a strong sense. I don’t think that I could ever explain that comforting peace that no one else could offer except Him. I eventually started getting better. I started eating a little bit better. I was able to wash my hair. I had scheduled an appointment with Emory (hospital) with another neurologist. The whole way to Atlanta I had my ears covered and my eyes. I was a nervous wreck just wondering what the result was going to say. The neurologist came in and he was looking over my images and he said, “I don’t know what we saw before but the lesions that were on your brain are blood vessels. He said, “You have no lesions on your brain.” He said, “You are M.S. free and you need to go live your life.” After the fourth neurologist, I am definitely believing that it was healing.
