Hi! My name is Matt and I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the early age of 20 in August of 2010, this is my story in progress!
Multiple sclerosis: An autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system which consist of the brain, optic nerves, and all the nerves in the spinal cord.
When I showed up in a wheelchair to see my new neurologist after a 6 week stay in a physical rehab hospital and asked what I needed to do next to get back up on my feet she told me to "get used to the wheelchair, it's the coarse of the disease". Good thing I didn't listen!
