Default being a car enthusiasts and living with multiple sclerosis


hey guys i know this is a strange topic but i am bored and i decided to make it anyway

3 months ago i was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (chronic nerve disease)
i still dont know much about it because i just try not to think about it i try to put it out of my mind because it just forced my life into a very quick and short uturn

it all started with numbness in my left side and then moved to my eyes which caused me to have alot of trouble seeing i couldnt even read what im typing now a month ago and then moved to severe numbness in my legs which made it hard to walk

they diagnosed me the first week of march and started me on steroids, then moved onto a daily shot which i will have to take for the rest of my life (yeah it sucks) and about 3 weeks ago i started chemo therapy i have only done one and i am starting to feel better i now have no numbness at all and my sight is coming back and i can actually walk with out the use of my cane for the first time in almost 3 months

i have actually been able to start on my 4dr project sleeper build and that has been very nice when my sight went bad i was not able to see well enough to drive therefor making it impossible for me to work since eventhough i am a mechanic i work at the airport as such and i drive all over the airport and fix shit and therfore i have been on medical leave from work for the past 3 months (since feb 25th) now that i am getting better i am able to drive i just try to be carfull since my peripheril vision is not entirely back and i cant see out the corner of my eyes

i would go back to work in the next few days but i cant for 2 reasons
#1 my doctor wont let me he says im not ready for all that stress yet
#2 i dont have a car that i can legaly drive on the streets right now because i had to drop the insurance on my crx because of the fact that i have no income other that selling my shit right now and the fact that my sedan wont pass emmissions right now and the fact that i dont have the money to register or liscence or insure it which means i am fu**ed until i get some money and i have short term dissability but they are taking thier sweet ass time in their decision to either approve or disaprove my claim

if they approve my claim i will get around 3,000 from them for the past few months since they are being incredibly slow i might never see anymoney from them

but the reason this disease could and is really difficult for the car enthusiest is because it comes and goes as it pleases and there can be so many different symptoms that its not even funny for example there is a condition called optic neuritis caused by ms and it could even put me in a wheel chair and make me a quadrapalegic at any time there is no cure so basically i could be 100% back to normal in the morning and in a month i could be in a wheelchair and i never know what is going to happen

ok well i have writen a long enough book so thanks to those who read but please dont pitty me i hate that but thanks all of you you all seem to be a great bunch of people

thanks for reading
zac

You know I've got your back Zac! Keep your head up! Good things will follow. You are far greater than you have ever dreamed of being. And no matter what you are experiencing in your life right now, trust that all is good and unfolding in your best interest. It may not look pretty, but it is exactly what you need to learn, and for you to grow into the person you have been destined to become. Everything occurring in your life has been perfectly orchestrated to inspire your maximal evolution as a human being and bring you into your true power. Learn from life and allow it to take you where you are meant to go - it has your highest interest in mind!
