At a recent conference, we caught up with a few TECFIDERA Peer Speakers and asked them to share their stories.
What does living with relapsing MS mean to you?
TECFIDERA was approved by the FDA in March 2013.
Megan: I was diagnosed with MS on February 3rd, 2006.
Megan: All of a sudden, those words of saying ‘I had multiple sclerosis’ challenged my identity of who I was. I learned to really understand that life wasn’t over, just different. There’s more than one way to accomplish a goal.
Tecfidera® (dimethyl fumarate) is a prescription medicine used to treat people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis.
Megan: And so I had to find new methods. And if there’s a will, there’s a way. And I needed to focus on the “cans” and not the "can’ts”.
Patricia: I have come to meet so many people and touched so many lives, and they have touched my life, as well.
Patricia: It has shown me, new ways of doing things, of living. And instead of saying ‘why?’, my response is, ‘why not? Let’s do it.’ You’ll have your humps and bumps, but tomorrow is a new day.
Emily: I have lived with MS in my life for almost my whole life, because my dad was diagnosed 13 years before I was.
Emily: And so, my dad was a true role model to me of how to live life to the fullest, while also managing MS symptoms. So, yes, it is complicated. It’s very difficult to deal with the symptoms, like fatigue and dizziness. But at the same time, you just got to keep moving forward. You just got to keep living your life, because it’s the only life you get.
Ronnie: The more information I got…
Ronnie: And I think it’s important that people become educated, that you do your research. And you read and you study…I went from thinking it was a death sentence to coming up with this new motto: no limitations, only possibilities. And instead of talking about my pity story, and my sad story, I would talk about my options.
