Upside Down, Inside Out...All Things You Don't Think About!

This post is going to be extremely vague but extremely heart-filled. Two weeks ago, my Sweetie was getting fitted for his glasses. He began having eye problems last week. Two days ago, he had a follow-up visit with an ophthalmologist. 8 hours ago we received some life changing news...

My sweetie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. When the doctor told us of the speculation on Monday, we went on about our day as if it was impossible he could have this. I mean, the faces on the websites and commercials don't show young black males. The statistics are 1 in 10,000 so why would this healthy, sweet, smart guy be one in the number? So we just brushed it off, prayed about it and didn't really stress. Today when the doctor told us, it came as a complete shock. I can't say that I am not upset but what worsens the situation is that he has had it for years and this is the first time that a doctor has taken the time to test him. I trust in God though and I know that there is a reason for this. My sweetie is a strong young man with a lot of life ahead of him. This is not a death sentence and as far as we know, he will live a normal life and life expectancy, he'll just be taking drugs. We can deal. God didn't bring us to this situation to leave us and I know that He will be watching and caring for my sweetie, His child, for as long as his life prevails.

Point of all of this...Don't let doctors short you on your health care. Keep up with your health and stay on top of what is going on with your body. Things could be going on and you would never know. Take care of yourselves and pay attention to your body. This is definitely a wake up call for me. God has His hands over this situation so I am not worried. He will provide and keep my sweetie protected. This is something I can be sure of...

So I may not be blogging for a couple of weeks. He has a hospital stay of about 5 days and I will be working, staying with his parents (I hate being alone) and tending to him. In the meantime, if you are a prayer warrior and have a network of prayer warriors, keep us in your prayers.

Until next time...


  1. Praying for you and your sweetie.

  2. Medicine has come a long way and there are so many treatment options for MS! Your sweetie will be in my prayers. Stay strong mama!
