I am what I choose to become
This is Rebecca's story of recovery.
JUST. EAT. PLANTS.
I always thought that a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, an autoimmune, degenerative neurological disorder, would be the worst thing imaginable to have happen. So in August 2015 when I heard the words "It looks like you have MS", my world literally fell apart.
I felt scared. Sad. Overwhelmed. I had 2 small children and a husband. I was employed.
What was my future going to look like?
People say that when you are brought to your knees by a devastating diagnosis, you find the motivation for change. This site is about how I've changed and what I've done since that day.
Although fear is a great motivator, I'm no longer afraid of MS.
My mission is to help others lose the fear, dispel the myths and to change the stigma associated with MS.
