When I first started to lose the feeling in my left foot, I thought that maybe it was just some passing thing. But over the next week, the numbness spread up my left leg, and my left hand, and my left arm. I could not feel the left side of my body, which worried me.
Like everybody else, I have had my moments of doubt, worry and negativity, but I value my life more now than if I did not have MS. Being diagnosed with MS at the age of 20 years old has made me an even more positive person.
I do not want anyone to pity me because I have MS. I want them to be proud of me because I am positive, because I say, “I can.” Despite living with MS, I finished my studies at University and followed my dream to become an Engineer.
