I recently had an MRI for my multiple sclerosis. I have had one every year or every other year for 20 years. For the first time I got back MRI results that are good. I have no new multiple sclerosis brain activity. I do have a few lesions that are little bit larger than my last MRI. But my last MRI was in 2014. So they are only bigger because I haven’t gotten one for 3 years and the multiple sclerosis was getting worse until 2017 in December. So this scientifically proves that stem cells work! It has totally stopped the progression of my disease. If I had not gotten stem cell treatment I would have eventually be bedridden. But that’s what the pharmaceuticals companies want. That is why stem cells are not legal for Progressive multiple sclerosis in the United States. There are only a few doctors in America giving stem cells treatment for their illness. Stem cell treatment has a high risk for living your life. However, the ones that are giving out in America has had many fatalities. Going to Mexico for this treatment was the best thing I have ever done with my life. Having my daughter is the first thing. However , without stem cells I would not be able to get out of bed to be with her. She has already noticed that I am so much stronger and I am able to enjoy play with her. We play board games. Play with dolls. Play school. And it has made such a huge difference in my family’s life. Since before Christmas my daughter has been complaining, something that she calls frustrated feet My husband took her to he doctor and he reported that there was nothing physically wrong with her. I have all along thought that this was a frustrated mental thing. And that most of it was due to the fact that I wasn’t around to be her mother for the past two years. There is nothing better than seeing your child’s eyes light up just because you can play Connect 4 with her. She did the other night complain of frustrated feet and it showed that what I thought was the truth. she didn’t understand what the results said.. She thought that it meant I’m not going to get any better. After we explained that mommy still probably will get even better I just have to wait for new neural Pathways to grow. Which can take years. But with a wonderful family ,and a positive attitude I have no lack of faith and I believe that one day I will walk with a cane again. You can’t even put into words how happy and excited I am with this news. Since I’ve been home for Mexico one year, my husband has not had to pick me up and put me on the bed. He also used to help me on and ooff the commode. He has not had to do this at all and we are getting older and his back couldn’t take it much longer. I also wear underwear now and not depends. Most people wouldn’t be willing to share this information. But what a miracle I have had I want to scream it to the world. I have faith that new neural Pathways will grow. I will have much more good recovery. I names my daughter faith because I have so much faith in the joy to come and that she would be beautiful my one and only child.
My OBGYN 8 years ago told me it would be dangerous for me to carry a child as I would have a severe multiple sclerosis attack after. Unfortunately he was correct. When my daughter was only 5 months old I became paralyzed from the waist down she was so young at 5 months she did not remember I ever drove. That I ever could pick her up. And that I could not go do fun stuff with her outside because the air often made me sick and I would just get too worn out. She is such a sweet little girl and she has so much empathy her heart.
I am so blessed to have the friends and family I have. They have given me so much hope. Plus they’ve raised $54,000 for my treatment in Mexico. I still can’t walk. And I still often use a wheelchair out. But I really would be totally eventually paralyzed from the neck down. My disease was progressing so quickly this treatment was my only hope. I hope for all of you if you have multiple sclerosis or many other diseases you seek out treatment in another country. Because our country wants you to keep living off the pharmaceutical companies. I know for me I take many many pills everyday. I do take less since my stem cell treatment. I have just been on medication so long sometimes I start to ask myself if I even need them or people just want to make money. I can’t wait for new neural Pathways to grow. For the first time in a very long time I have so much hope for tomorrow. I just have so much joy that I know this disease isn’t going any further. Even if I don’t get any other good results just knowing that it’s stopped the progression makes it worth the money. Peace and love- Laurelin 🌻
