Back after a LONG time!

A big hello to all my friends and followers out there! The last several months, or I should say, the last 3 years were very tiring, busy, hectic and exhausting. For those of you wondering why I was absent for so long, read on…

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in January 2011. It was a life changing event for me. Those who are not aware, MS is a neurological disease that affects young adults, specially women, and hinders their ability to day-to-day tasks. MS is an auto-immune disease where the body’s own immune system attacks the central nervous system, causing a loss of functioning in certain areas of the body.

The first 2 – 3 years after my diagnosis were very scary and depressing and I was down in the pits for a long time. In the beginning I was in total denial and couldn’t accept the fact that I had MS! However, gradually, I found the courage to accept my disease, understand it and learn to live a normal and active life with it. I even took the initiative to start a non-profit organization for the welfare of MS patients which I am running under the name ‘Society for Multiple Sclerosis Patients in Pakistan‘. You can visit the website at www.smspp.org.pk

Meanwhile while all of this was happening, my website blog at SEO-Reloaded was hacked and the database was corrupted. I could not retrieve the files as the backups were also corrupted. Anyways, the easiest solution I could find was to start the site all over again. No point crying over spilled milk. So here is the first post. I might be able to get hold and find some of the earlier posts on my PC somewhere which I’ll try and add to the site. I still have to customize the theme a bit, update the contact details and get it working… one step at a time 🙂

Living with MS is not easy at all, but I try to live an active and normal life as much as possible. The disease has shattered a lot of my dreams, but at the same time, it has made me stronger and resilient. I plan to get back on my feet and start over once again. It won’t be easy, but I’m not a quitter. I’ve also started working on a couple of new projects which I will be sharing soon, so stay tuned!

Life has taught me that Nothing is impossible! The sky is the limit, so keep trying and never give up!
