About Keep SMyelin

“I’m thankful for my struggle, because without it, I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength.”
You’re probably asking yourself, “what does “Keep S’Myelin” mean? Keep S’Myelin is an online community-organization found on social feeds such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. The goal of this group is to simply raise Multiple Sclerosis awareness worldwide. A handful of people already know what “Keep S’Myelin” is. Its simple. KEEP SMILING! But to those who don’t already know, why is my version spelled differently? You’ll notice a between the S and the M in S’Myelin.┬áNow what is ‘Myelin’? Myelin is the protective layer that surrounds our nerves. You have it, I have it, even my cat has it – although it may be called something else in animal terms. In MS, our own immune systems are attacking the Myelin.
Think of it like this, your television works by getting signals through connecting a wire to an outlet. That wire (our nerves) is covered by plastic (myelin). If mice eat at that plastic covering, signals from the outlet wont transport as efficiently to the television. Thus, your TV wont work properly!

Thats what MS is! My own immune system is attacking my myelin, causing 95+ symptoms such as numbness and tingling, dizziness, fatigue, etc. It affects approximately 2.5 million people worldwide – and growing – but not everyone has heard of MS. So thats why I created Keep S’Myelin – so even those who are unaffected will have some insight.
