My M.S. has changed rapidly over the past two years. It has seemed to become more progressive. I have been told that this is probably as good, or hopefully, as bad as it gets. There are several very promising drugs becoming available this summer. Besides the physical aspect of this horrible disease, Dr. Sylvester is quite concerned with it's mental toll on me. I have lost all my confidence. I am frightened that I might fall. It is a constant fear of mine. I am also fighting a feeling of hopelessness.
I visited ECAD (East Coast Assistance Dogs). They let me walk with a beautiful Golden Retriever. I could not believe what he was able to do for me. He went up and down stairs with me and we walked. I did not fall, but I must admit, I cried. I started to feel hopeful that there is a future I can enjoy without fear of falling. It was a moment of hope with a true confident feeling. I am so excited to say that I recieved an email yesterday that my dog will be available in July. I can hardly wait. Only problem is, I need to raise the money!
