MS is a progressive neurological disease that occurs when there's a breakdown in communication between the brain and other parts of the body, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The exact cause is unknown and the disease presents itself differently for everyone. However, there are two times more common in women, hormones may play a role, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Common symptoms include blurred vision and difficulty with coordination and balance. (Read more about One Woman's Experience with MS in Fitness Saved My Life: From MS Patient to Elite Triathlete)

I was in this wardrobe fitting two days ago. And I am in the deepest gratitude. So profound, it is, I have decided to share. The brilliant costumer #Allisaswanson #harlglass wants to wear this new #Netflix show, but she carefully gets my legs in my pants, pulls my tops over my head, my coats buttons and offers her to steady myself. I have #multiplesclerosis. I am in an exacerbation. By the grace of the lord, and by Netflix, I have a job. A wonderful job. I am disabled. I sometimes fall. I drop things. My memory is foggy. And my left side is asking for directions from a broken gps. But we are doing it. And I laugh and I do not know exactly what I want to do but I want to do my best. Since my diary at ten thirty pm On the night of August 16, especially @jaime_king @sarahmgellar @realfreddieprinze @tarasubkoff. My producers #noreenhalpers who assured me that everyone has something. #chrisregina #aaronmartin and every crew member … thank you. I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can not help unless you ask. It can be overwhelming in the beginning. You want to sleep. You always want to sleep. So I do not have answers. You see, I want to sleep. But I am on the forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok. But if you see me, dropping crap all over the street, feel free to help pick it up. It takes a whole day for me alone. Thank you and may we all know good days among the challenges. And the biggest thanks to @elizberkley who forced me to see her brother #drjasonberkley who gave me this diagnosis after finding that on mri. I thought I was a pinched nerve. I fell down in front of him. I have probably had this incurable disease for 15 years at least. And I relied on at least know. And share.
