My name is Turkessa Gordon. At the age of 23 years old. I was diagnosed with MS or Multiple Sclerosis. I recall laying in a hospital bed alone unable to comprehend or even pronunounciate multiple sclerosis. The doctor handed me a booklet on the disease. I would go through steroid treatments, physical and occupational therapies, and my new MS medicine (Betaserson) regime.
I tried to explain the disease to family and friends but with no understanding or flat out denial. I learned to just be and not complain. The actions of denial would lead to many issues because I never addressed the steps of grief over my life before MS. It would take nearly 20 years to get properly treated for MS and my mental health.
I wrote this ebook of 30 day affirmations with the newly diagnosed MS patient that may think they are alone in mind. Please know we all have good and bad days. It is what we do with them that makes the difference. Be inspired!
