WE DID IT!!!

Whoohoo!!! My support team and myself had a great time walking today. The weather was kind and it didn't rain. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at the halfway mark, before setting off again and completing our walk. 
Biggest thanks to my amazing friends Tish, Lea, Leanne and Loz, my awesome husband Ian, gorgeous sons Cooper and Keegan and to Kobi, Jack and Bella who walked with us.
Thank you to all who have contributed to my fund-raising goal. Your support means so much.
Looking forward to doing it all again next year.

My MS Journey

In July 2015 my life changed forever. 
After several weeks of nerve pain, I presented at the emergency department with numbness in my legs and my balance was off.
By that night, I couldn't walk.
The next day, I was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. My immune system had attacked the myelin sheath surrounding the nerves on my spinal cord. Little did I know that my journey was just beginning. 
I eventually regained my ability to walk. Regular neurologist appointments and MRIs followed over the next 2 years. 
It was on what was meant to be my last MRI, that more lesions were found on my spine and my neurologist delivered the devastating news that my TM had become MS.
5 years on and my life is very different. I've had to give up working as a nurse because of the debilitating fatigue that I have. I can't do so many of the things that I enjoyed doing.
But I am still alive and enjoying life, all be it a new normal for me. I am surrounded by my loving family and amazing friends. I have great support networks in place, especially through MS.
My motto is : It is what it is.
Enjoy life and try new things. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed.
