“O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.” ~ Psalm 30:2
It’s been just about a year since I’ve posted. Instead of becoming just another MS blog that mysteriously stops, I wanted to say “so long” to the online world for now. It’s not a final goodbye, as writing has always been therapeutic for me and I’m sure one day I’ll return. This blog was an online refuge during a most poignant time of my life; a quiet place to gather my thoughts, write out my feelings and make sense of what I believed to be the best treatment for me.
I’m still on that path of diet, exercise and most importantly strengthening my faith. I’ve worked very hard since my diagnosis four years ago to clean-up my diet, proactively stay active, reduce stress and believe with my whole heart that God will keep me well. And I’ve been blessed. Since June 2010, I’ve had no relapse; no issues or progression of disability; no reoccurrence of symptoms.
So if you run across this blog and wonder, “what happened to this person?” The answer is that I’m living my life happy, healthy and MS-symptom free.
So long and God bless!

Thank you! You too 🙂
I just wanted to say congratulations and thank you!! Although you have never met us (it heard from us), my husband and I found your blog 3 years ago and decided to follow the same path. My husband has had no relapse and progression free for 3 years. Thank you for sharing your story. You helped us make the decision to follow this path. Blessings to you!
Thank you so much for your kind words! That is wonderful that your husband has been able to find stability and wellness. I hope it continues for him! If you aren’t already, you should follow Dr. Terry Wahls. Her story is amazing and it lends credibility to all of us “crazies” online who are convinced that diet can help and heal. Take care and thanks again 🙂
This may be a moot point, but thank you for sharing your story. I am only reading your blog now, but I found it helpful, as we have many similarities.
I was diagnosed with MS in 2010 and have used the Swank diet as a resource for my diet, however, I’ve only been gluten and dairy free for the past three months, as my original focus was on reducing saturated fats. Today, my neurologist is strongly pushing Gilenya and possibly Lemtrada, but it is so difficult to start these drugs with the known side effects.
I’ve recently purchased Dr.Wahls’ book and aim to modify my diet further.
All the best if you read this message and thank you.
It was so refreshing to find this blog. Please cone back!
