by Helga Morrison
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the chronic progressing disease of the central nervous system leading to physical disability. As a rule, people at mature age suffer this disease and in many regions of the world, the quantity of patients with the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis steadily grows. With their growth increases the moral and social obligations of the state governments and public organizations related with problems of diagnostics and treatment for people in society with full or partial loss of functionality.
As it is known, the truth is born in dispute. It is not unconditional conciliation but the opposite — the argued doubt and denial, which conducts a civilized society to the acceptance of correct decisions, leading over the conservatism to the progress and a science to a victory over the human mind over the natural phenomena and obscurantism.
The alternative opinion about the nature of the MS origin offered by Helga Morrison represents an interesting attempt to lift a real veil of mystery related to this disease. The absence of professional experience of work in neurology has not prevented the author to use common sense in the formation of a nonstandard opinion about the disease.
Written representations direct interest for a wide range of readers and undoubtedly should generate a wave of new hope among patients. It would be desirable, however, for patients to be aware of the danger of self-treatment and the inadmissibility of individual decisions without consultations with medically qualified personnel.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Three hundred fifty thousand Americans have been diagnosed with MS, including me, a twenty-seven-year-old woman named Helga. I love verses, popular music, action movies, and racing cars. I run, swim, and cycle daily, as well as go to pistol ranges and work out. But what I do most frequently is study in school and participate in sports. I do not have any time for changes in my daily routine. I lead an average life of an American girl.
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis five years ago. After my first relapse with MS, I was threatened with Damocles’s sword and now have to use a wheelchair. This causes a steady psychological complex that is difficult to deal with at times. I struggle to keep a good outlook on life since I am a fighter in spirit.
My passion for life created a strong desire to use common sense to make a determination in the MS mystery. And I did it for all of us.
