One Woman’s Powerful Story of Living with Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis can also cause insidious complications

Colleen often felt tired and weak as her disease progressed, which is why her husband didn't think anything was out of the ordinary when she would spend days in bed. But on the Saturday of April 21, 2007, her husband began to worry. Colleen had not awoken from her slumber for over 2 days. He decided to take her to the doctors at Community Care.

At the doctor's office, she remained mostly unresponsive. She doesn't remember the visit much. On Sunday night, she was still very lethargic and confused. When she lost control of her bowels, her husband Terry knew that something bad was definitely going on. This time, he brought her to the emergency room, where the doctors realized Colleen was in a lot of trouble.
