Jack Osbourne, 26-year-old TV actor and son of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just two weeks of having his firstborn, Pearl, with his fiancée, Lisa Stelly, Jack Osbourne was became sad then angry.
Overcoming stages of grief when anyone finds out they have been diagnosed with something so detrimental, Jack Osbourne told Female First:
I realized, being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point – if anything it’s only going to make it worse. Adapt and overcome is my new motto.
How admirable is Jack Osbourne? It is totally normal for him to feel sad and angry about this, but to realize how to handle the situation at such short notice is just so inspiring.
Jack Osbourne first noticed the multiple sclerosis when 60% of his vision was gone in his right eye. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body attacks itself. This disease affects the central nervous system and targets the brain and spinal cord. Thus resulting in symptoms that show change in balance, vision and thought.
Here are a couple early symptoms of multiple sclerosis. If you are suspicious about multiple sclerosis, it’s best to go to your health care provider to check it out. Better safe than sorry! Let’s all hope for the best for Jack Osbourne and his family. I’m sure they will all overcome this challenge with grace and come out the other side stronger.
