From Multiple Sclerosis To Measureless Grace With Renè Lowings

In 2015, our reasonably “normal” life came to a sudden halt when I found myself unable to move as usual. I was 23 years old at that time, a wife to an incredible husband, and a mom to a busy baby boy of 11-months old. I remember the morning it seemed life got paused; when my right foot did not want to brake properly when I was driving. My foot refused to remain still when I was moving it from the petrol- to brake pedal. I knew something was seriously wrong, and we booked a consultation at a nearby physician, and after some discussion he proceeded with the tests.
