I've come so far since I was diagnosed with MS in April 2016. 
I remember being so angry at the world while I laid in the hospital after basically self-diagnosing myself and fighting for doctors to listen to me because I was "just a nursing student."
3 failed medications, an extra semester of nursing school (because I failed the semester before graduation after multiple hospitalizations), 15+ lesions on my brain and spine, and 1 lost job later - 
I've finally found something that works. 🧡

I used to ask 'why me?' when I thought about having MS, but having this scary autoimmune disease has taught me not to take things in life for granted. You never think it's going to be you that can't walk, can't write, can't do your dream job. Until it is. It's taught me to never give up on my goals. To prove all the people wrong who said I couldn't be a bedside RN with MS. That I'm so blessed with such a strong support system. And to never stop fighting for the things I want in life, no matter how big or small. It has challenged me and helped me grow into a stronger woman. 
God doesn't give you battles you can't handle, and he always has a purpose for us. 🙏
I never thought I'd be able to turn this scary disease into something that gives so many other people hope, including my patients who struggled with this diagnosis, just by sharing my journey with MS and all of the battles I've faced and won. 
I hope to one day become an MS cerified nurse and continue to use my struggles and achievements to empower and uplift other individuals with MS.

This has been my only trip to the shops (or anywhere else) in nearly 2 weeks. @bosleypatch is the most amazing little pop up fruit, veg, bakery and flower ‘shop’which operates from this tiny little wooden shed (not even a shed) and Tamsin Lovett is the amazing woman who must work a million hours a day to grow, pick, make and box everything on offer. Her vegetable boxes are in huge demand, especially at the moment and as usual she has risen to the challenge of making sure nobody goes without. We’ve bought vegetables today and her amazing sourdough for lunch 🌱😋💕 #supportlocal #vegan #plantbased #veganfood #vegetarian #crueltyfree #organic #healthyfood #food #healthy #vegansofig #foodporn #foodie #veganlife #love #healthylifestyle #veganism #fitness #simplethingsinlife #coffeelover #veganfoodshare #natural #veganrecipes #health #instafood #dairyfree #MS #MultipleSclerosis #mswarrior #msawareness

U is for #Uni. Another absolutely decadent delicacy from the sea. These pokey #seaurchins are filled with creamy buttery insides. A good source of essential amino acids and those oh so important omega-3s too. They’re not widely farmed (yet - let’s hope it stays that way) and they're also a good source of antioxidants known as carotenoids that help protect against #neurodegenerative diseases. Isn’t it nice when the most delectable foods are good for you too? Just watch out for the spikes! #mswarrior #msawareness #msfoodfighter #foodfighter #seafood #wahlswarrior #wahlsdiet #livingproof #nocheatdays #foodalphabet #bestrestaurant #msdiet #msalphabet #fuckms #foodphotography #foodstyling 📷: @odetterestaurant

How are you doing? Wow, what a difference a few weeks makes! I don’t know about you, but I struggled this weekend to keep my spirits up without an end date in sight for this whole unbelievable situation!⁣
⁣
I’m so worried about those who have gotten the virus, or who’ve lost their jobs. And I feel scared and devastated for those whose loved ones are fighting for their lives while they’re unable to be with them. I also can’t stop thinking about (and I’m so grateful for) all of the doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers out there risking their own lives for all of us. ⁣
⁣
I feel guilty and selfish even feeling sorry for myself for a second when so many people out there have real struggles and forever losses. ⁣
⁣
With that said. It’s been difficult to decide what to post that’s sensitive to what’s going on and also positive & authentic. The truth is, this is really hard. I miss so many things I used to take for granted. I’m sure you do to! ⁣
⁣
With all the unknowns & things outside of our control, it’s helpful (at least for me) to stay busy, create a plan for each day, and to keep strong (emotionally, mentally, & physically). It’s hard not to overeat out of boredom, and to motivate to exercise at home (even changing out of the previous night’s pajamas is difficult) But we have to! ⁣
⁣
In my latest post on Self-Care At Home, I give a ton of disability friendly products, apps, and website recommendations I’m using while social isolating. I hope you’ll find them helpful! Go to my Link I’m bio or Trend-Able.com to read. ⁣

Fab 4. Fat (full fat coconut milk) . Protein (@alohamoment Vanilla protein). Fruit (half frozen small banana + few chunks mango). Greens (organic baby spinach). This bad boy will start my morning after 8am (intermitten fasting ~12-14 hrs) and keep me full until lunch 🍴
