"My name is Hayley and I'm a 37 year old mum of one. I was diagnosed with MS at 13 in the year 2000."

"It started one morning with severe pins and needles in both my feet that just wouldn't go away, and eventually travelled up my legs and body. Within the space of a week I was completely paralyzed from the neck down.

"I was admitted into intensive care and spent a total of four months in the hospital, undergoing various tests, lumber punctures, MRI's and undergoing rehabilitation to learn to walk again. I initially was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis but I relapsed again within that year and my final diagnosis was 'Severe Rapidly Evolving MS.' Last year, in 2022, I suffered an unpleasant relapse and found out I had another large lesion, causing problems with my mobility. Now I'm using my wheelchair far more and many other mobility aids help me get through daily tasks.

"It's hard living with MS as it is such an unpredictable condition. Life planning becomes so challenging as I'm constantly thinking about fatigue levels and the pain/weakness. I could be out and about using my crutches then all of a sudden needing a wheelchair as my right leg has 'gone dead' and struggling to walk. I am proud to use all my mobility aids and help promote positive inclusion for everyone who suffers with MS and other disabilities. I will not let MS or disability take away my character & style! I strive to retain as much of myself as possible. I'm Hayley and not the illness!! I will use whatever mobility I need on the day or even by the hour!!!

"I am proud of myself and all I have been through and truly aim to live my best life with as many mobility aids I need to get through each day. I hope others will also learn to adapt to their own unique MS situation and try to not let MS get in the way of enjoying all this life has to offer. Keep on warriors, you are stronger than you give yourself credit for!!"

FLARES x 3 #multiple illnesses

I am not sure if this is where I should post, but I could really really use some advice on flares. I have been "flaring " going on 3 weeks. I don't know which illness is flaring? Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain Syndrome, ME/CFS, Primary Sjögren's syndrome, osteoarthritis, refractory migraines, Lupus and RA are being tested. I have been in this pain circus for 17 years....
BUT never had everything 🔥🔥🔥 all at once. Please, if you have time and energy to share, tell me what to do to make it tolerable. I am sinking into pain quicksand, and I hurt everywhere. I appreciate you taking time to reply, if you can.

Sharing past traumas with loved ones.

Trigger warning

I finally shared my childhood sexual assault with my mom today. I kept it a secret for so long because my family was threatened they would be killed if I said anything. I’m 46 years old and it took me this long to feel safe enough to tell her. She asked me why it took so long and I told her I was protecting her and I didn’t want her to see the images in her head of what was done to me. I was so scared to tell her all the details but I knew I had to let it out. Part of my story is floating around on the Mighty and I’m thankful for all the positive feedbacks I’ve gotten. I’m one step closer to closing this chapter of the little girl who lost her innocence and is getting strength now to overcome all of my traumas. This was a really big step for me and I’m so glad I have the courage to do it. I looking forward to having complete peace and happiness in my life. We all deserve that. #CPTSD #BipolarDisorder #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #Childhood sexual assault #Anxiety #multiple traumas
