Overcoming Fear

Another new experience. I'm not entirely sure what I would call this. A "dip" maybe? It was weird because it was so gradual. I'm not sure if this is part of the whole new life so to speak or if this is the start of a relapse. Maybe it will go away and that will be that. Or maybe it progresses. Only time will tell I guess. My feet have been numb and my legs tingly. Almost like a slight vibrating...and it's almost constant. It's been like this for about a week. And I have been more tired than usual.

I'm not sure what else to say other than I am really trying to not live in fear. So much is unknown and I have been working through a lot emotionally. The past couple of days have been better, but there is still a long way to go and I know that I will still be dealing with this once everyone else has long forgotten. But God never forgets me and He doesn't give me a spirit of fear.

"God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and of a sound mind."  2nd Tim 1:7

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."  Isaiah 41:10


  1. Charis, I don't know you very well, and I havn't know about your journey with MS for very long. I think of and pray for you, and I can see from reading your posts and seeing you at the rink that you are a woman of courage. I pray that you have a circle of people/woman around you, who walk the journey with you. Peace be with you,
    Lori Franz

    1. Thank you Lori. Your prayers are much appreciated! I'm sure we will see each other around the rink for a few more years to come and be able to get to know each other better:)
