On May12th, 2012 it was a sunny warm day with temperatures around 70-80 degrees, abnormal for May. Carrissa woke up with a headache; we didn’t think anything about it because migraines and headaches were normal in your house. I get migraines, Carrissa would get migraines and so would her brother, Garrett. Carrissa then got physically sick, again nothing unusual, she and Garrett would both get sick when they had migraines and then they would feel better and the migraine would go away.
When my daughter Carrissa was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis on February 11, 2013 our lives were forever changed. So many questions about what the future held for Carrissa, our family and what was next. Would Carrissa continue to get lesions on her brain and if she did would she have another episode, would it leave her paralyzed, would she walk again, would she lose her eye sight?
