I was diagnosed with #Lupus in 2016 and I honestly was in denial. I just couldn’t understand how I could be diagnosed with another chronic illness when I already had #multiplesclerosis ! I felt like I was truly becoming a #mswarrior by this time and here’s some more news I certainly didn’t want to hear. And when I say MSWarrior, I mean that I was finally understanding what I had to do to be my healthiest self. But as you can already guess I was not getting as healthy as I thought. In fact, things were going downhill from there. In 2017, I had a simultaneous exacerbation (Flare up) of Lupus and MS. I had the butterfly rash on my face, I was weak, I couldn’t walk, and I was utterly shocked that the very thing the doctors told me would eventually happen, happened. I wouldn’t accept any of it. I remember looking at my husband and saying, “THIS WON’T BE MY LIFE!” I agreed to rest for a week. But after that week I worked everyday to lift my legs, and once I was able to lift my legs again, I tried to walk. This was the toughest part, and I had more falls trying to walk again than I can count. But within that year I was able to walk again, with the help of physical therapy. However, I knew my work wasn’t done because I had to figure out how to manage both Lupus and MS.... I was put on #Rituxan and after 1 year of that I felt the worse I have ever felt. I knew I had to make a MAJOR change. I started doing my research and I found #drsebi 🏾 It will be 1 year in July since I began following Dr Sebi’s nutritional guide and, there are no words expressing how grateful and thankful I am to have found his work. #nomedication necessary because food is my medicine now. I’m doing better than I’ve been in 7 years. Yes, I still struggle with certain things and my health isn’t perfect, but I’m managing. I tell this story because I know there are others out there who are chronically ill 1, 2, 3, and even more times over. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF! You are in control. Love on yourself everyday, because you are going through shit people could never imagine. Sending love to all you!
Side note; it doesn’t hurt to have my husband by my side #msfighter #alkalinevegan #starterlocs - 7 hours ago
