Pulled from a bath tub

The nurses came to my home to help me with bathing.   They literally had to pull me out of the bath tub.

It is a horrible feeling when one cannot take care of ones personal hygiene.

I could not stand and was falling down often.  I was feeling like a wet noodle!

I sometimes had to have help with pulling up my pants as I tried to hold on and not fall.

To make things worse, I also became allergic to ACTH IV's.  It was the only meds they had back in the 1980-1990's.

Perfect timing for me.  The Betaseron injections came out!  There was a lottery to receive these new meds.  We were so thrilled.

These new meds have been a life saver for me.  I give God the credit behind the research personally.

When it looks dismal do not give up.  Keep Hoping!

How long ago was that, sweetie. I wish I were closer so I could come help. I know you're better now that you've gotten past the initial reactions of the shots. Right?

I'm sorry for the MS battle. I can't imagine, but I know a friend who has it. There are good and bad days.

May God bring you help and healing today.

Kim, so very sorry you had to go through that. It would be aweful. I had to depend on someone else a few times in my life after some surgeries and I sure didn't like it.
Kim, you are such an inspiration to us ALL! Thank you for sharing and so glad that the shots, etc. worked for you!
Blessings and Big Hug,
Coreen
