After the holidays

Hey beauties! So since this week has been pretty rough, I had a lot of time to think and reflect. First off, I don't like pity or for anyone to feel sorry for me and my illness because I'm not! :) I know God doesn't make any mistakes and I Do serve a purpose. Next, I am becoming more interested in spreading awareness about MS and possibly advocacy. Also, I have to find a better nutrition plan. I know I'm always like "oh I will watch what I eat or workout this amount of time" truth is I may start off a week or two in a habit and then give up. Well, I need to be lighter. I could lose about 15 pounds. When I lose the weight, I believe there could be better strength in my legs, my cholesterol will go down and I will have a better BMI number.
I am being realistic by starting this after the holidays because I'm sure I will still pig out for Christmas and new years lol but I am determined :) plus I want to look good for my honeymoon ;)

A MUST WATCH-my secret- the diagnosis

I saw this video and I couldn't do anything but say "YES" someone knows and can relate to how I feel. This is my testimony and I plan to spread awareness about Multiple Sclerosis. I'm trying to turn something that may not be so great into a Positive. God is good and I will always praise HIM.

Rough Week but the Sun is still Shining

This week (starting from saturday) hands down was one of the worst I have experienced in a while yet I still smile I had a bad flare up with the illness. It got to the point where I could not walk well without assistance and my left side of my body was completely weak and numb. Despite this, I know I still have it alot better than many. As I sat in my Neurologist office waiting to be called on I saw many with neurological disorders whom were in wheel chairs and all I could do is say Lord have Mercy and Thank you.

So to help with the flare up I had to take 3 doses of steroids YIKES!!!!!! today meaning 12/16 will be my third day of treatment and I feel a difference already. I am still walking a little slow however I can do it on my own . the burning in my arms and legs has stopped, and I have gain strength in my left side so I’m good. The steroids are given through an IV fusion and it takes about an hour. Thank goodness my mother (who is retired) was there with me so I didn’t go through this alone. Stevey was at work so its great to have had the next closest person to me there. My blood is getting tested as well, and alot of test are being done as we speak to see if the antibodies in my system is really taking in the disease modifying drug (Avonex) that I have been on for over a year. If it comes back that it’s not receiving well then that’s like saying that I’m not taking any therapy for it at all good news is that there are other alternatives so we shall see!

I also signed up to participate in a study in New York that is geared towards African-Americans with MS. See in the past Multiple Sclerosis was mostly common in Caucasian females but now it has expanded to Men and other races. Scientists believe that the cognitions and progression of the disease may be worst in African-Americans so with that said I am all for learning and participating.

Which is leading me to the next step. I decided that I want to get more active in the research/giving back/ advocacy in the MS movement. I had a blog which I created when I first was diagnosed but I barely blog there I don’t know why I havent but I plan to change that. I think I may delete and start from scratch. I just feel that with positivity, psychology background, wanting to spread awareness will really be fulfilling Pray for me yall! lol

She Will Smile

She will smile


Nicole C. Davenport

Easy going

Happy Go Lucky

Miss Goodie Two Shoes

Strolls like no care in the world

She smiles from ear to ear

Positive thinker and motivator


It all changed, she changed

It felt like a tornado went through her life.

At first she thought it was her imagination

She spoke and others thought she was crazy or making excuses

So she felt sad, alone, defeated and chose to ignore it.


It happened again

Swept her off to a world that felt far away yet she was still in her usual setting

She learned the news

She accepted the challenge

She’s dealing with the changes


God does listen to prayers

God does remove obstacles

God does heal

God does provide strength

Amazing Grace

God gave her earthly angels who have her back

God gave her a life partner to see her though the rough days

God gave her a family who supports her

God gave her friends who she considers hand-picked family

And for this………..

She will survive, She will Smile.
