A little bit about me
Hi, I’m Eliza and I’m 26 years old. I have Multiple Sclerosis, EPI/PEI, chronic pancreatitis, a pineal brain cyst, degenerative spine, and many other diseases.
How do I deal living with multiple disabilities?
I don’t remember the last time that I felt healthy and able. If I’m having a good day with my MS then another of my diseases will creep up on me. I feel as though I never get a break. But, I will not give up. I just keep telling myself during my darkest days.. “it’ll get better and this isn’t forever.” I mean, my diseases are with me forever but hopefully, the pain will get easier to deal with. I outweigh the bad with the good. For example, I have lost complete feeling in my foot for longer than a year and don’t expect to ever get the feeling back BUT it means I appreciate so much more! More than I ever could imagine. Eating food. I rely on PERT (Creon tablets) whenever I eat or drink which is a total pain BUT although it’s a negative it’s also a major positive as it means I can enjoy foods that I couldn’t beforehand! It gets better, just give it time 🧡
