"Malin Schulz, 43, has been so ill with ms, multiple sclerosis, that she had been sitting in a wheelchair."
"To climb Kilimanjaro was therefore a big challenge. Would your body cope?"
" I have never felt so good in my whole life! It was a great feeling that I had taken me up for their own machine with my crazy body, " says Malin."
"It was when the vision on the left eye rapidly deteriorated, as Malin Schulz in Danderyd, was diagnosed with ms, multiple sclerosis. She was 29 years old and had already five years earlier had become numb in the front of the body."
"– I decided pretty quickly to adapt to the disease and try to have a good life possible, " she says."
"since Then she has had several relapses. She has suffered loss of strength in the arms and hands and not able to grab something, had multiple nerve pain so agonizing that she vomited, been the constant nausea and have been sitting in a wheelchair that your legs are not borne her."
"Suffering from hjärntrötthet"
"But she has not allowed herself not to be discouraged, but was thinking about which life she wanted to live. She said up in the telecom industry and is now working as a gym instructor in spinning, aerobics, yoga and as a personal trainer. She will have the energy of the training, but because she suffers from hjärntrötthet she is able only to work part-time."
"– I get incredible dippar, then I can nothing, without crashing, which I do almost every day. Then it is just to lie down and rest."
"In January decided Malin Schulz to adopt its biggest challenge so far – to climb the 5 895 metre high mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and together with her husband Johan, 43, and 19 other people. It was a charity project to raise money for activities for children with disabilities."
" I felt, ”this is my thing”. But I had no idea if I could handle it with my ms. "
"It took six days up and down the mountain, mostly hiking and light climbing."
" I was worried about being completely knocked out, but for every metres of altitude, I got more power. I have breathed my life in the best breath ever!"
"the Last leg took the company forward in the pitch darkness for eight hours to reach the snowy top at sunrise. Malin describes the view as magic."
"– It was crazy beautiful!"
"It was also a personal victory."
"– It was a great feeling that I had taken me up for their own machine with my crazy body, that one moment can have severe multiple nerve pain – and the next second can not hold tight because you have a problem with the bladder. Anyway, I could do this and feel so incredibly good."
"today is World MS Day when the disease is noticed the world over. Of the ”MS challenge” as Malin Schulz is an ambassador for. The aim is to encourage people with ms to adopt a personal challenge to find more joy in life."
" It is important to challenge themselves based on their own conditions, because the disease strikes so different. It is easy to isolate with this disease, so for some can the challenge be to get out and meet people, " says Malin Schulz."
"Yourself, she knows already what challenge will be next summer. Then she'll ride a bike around the mountain Mont Blanc."
" And I'll climb up to Mont Blanc!"
"Family: Husband John, 43, and son Marcus, 7."
"Lives: In a house in Danderyd, sweden"
