Day 24 of #30daysofMD @brynnicorn “Well at least we know what it is”. Because in my 12 year old mind, I thought if we know what it was then we could fix it. I would not be able comprehend the sheer destruction that Muscle Dystrophy can do to the body. After being diagnosed, it was a steady decline of muscle wasting. I have often wondered what the progression would have been like if we didn’t name it. Like when you don’t realize you have a cut, but when you see it, it starts hurting then. I was very lucky to have a Mom that took me down many alternative therapy avenues. From stem cells, German sheep cells, chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy, Chinese medicine and currently neuro feedback. The Doctors just wanted to give me medication. I am not afraid of Muscular Dystrophy, I don’t live my fear in frustration or fear. It is part of my journey, and I will decide if my journey will be a happy one not it.
