"Today is a banner day. I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do. This has been a process. And will continue to be one. I am immunocompromised for next three months at least. So no kisses please. I wanted to make sure any complications that might arise here were my private space. And we got through brilliantly," she wrote.

"Ever since my son was born I was in MS flare and I didn't even know. And I was giving it everything to seem normal and I was self medicating when he wasn't with me and I was drinking. I was in pain. I wasn't always drinking but there were times when I couldn't take it and I was really struggling," she confessed.
