I was diagnosed with MS in 2012 and it’s had it’s ups and downs ever since. The biggest loss is my ability to walk for long distances. I love the beach and that first summer after being diagnosed I couldn’t make it the mile to public beach and back. I remember getting there and sitting on the sand crying because my left foot had dragged on the sand and it was now bleeding. I could not believe that I could not walk back. I didn’t know what hurt more my cut up toes or that I could not walk back. I got so angry that I got up and forced myself to walk back not matter it took. Of course, my determination to walk back cost me a visit to the ER but it also made me realize that my life had changed. I do have a bioness brace now that helps me walk barefoot on the beach, but it has been a struggle.
