Obviously this is not my usual post about Domain Brokering but I want to spread awareness that we should not take life for granted because when you are least expecting it something devasting could easily happen.
I am posting this as we are only human after all.
It is still very surreal at the moment as my 17 year old daughter and I come to terms with the fact she has been diagnosed with MS only last week.
We are staying positive as she prepares herself for the Lemtrada treatment in the coming weeks. We are on standby and we will have a phonecall in the morning any day now to come in for the afternoon, as the hospital are just waiting for a bed to become available.
This has been a shock to the system for both of us but more so for my daughter who already has had two relapses within a period of 6 months.
After having a CT & MRI scan they discovered lesions on her brain and spine and after the lumbar puncture they confirmed my daughter has MS.
I never really thought much about the disease up until now and although I have heard about people having it I never really knew how debilitating the disease actually was. In the worst cases people are bed bound or in wheelchairs as they do not have a cure for the disease and only experiment with different drugs as they do not know what causes it either.
I am posting this for awareness as little things like jumbling up words when speaking or writing although may be laughed off could in actualfact be a sign of the disease manifesting. Also blurred vision or the need to go to the lavatory without notice could be signs that the disease is revealing its ugly head.
My daughters symptoms started with pins and needles and numbness to the lower part of her body aswell as tiredness and bad headaches.
Although I feel sorry for her as any mother would be, I also give her motivation and encourage her to make goals and maintain them so that she reaches them someday.
She is in her last year of college before going onto University to study Medicine.
Hopefully the Lemtrada will help her.
I am seriously thinking of buying a suitable domain name that will sell motivational merchandise on a website that I will develope and will help spread awareness whilst also help raise funds for more research.
I know there are MS Charities, Groups and Societies out there already but I also want to do my part to help present day and future patients.
Anyone with ideas please PM me.
