As a mom to a toddler, Jamie-Lynn Sigler already knows that motherhood can be challenging.
Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) at age 20, Sigler says her symptoms, which include a weaker right side and difficulty walking for long periods of time, don’t hinder her from taking care of her 2-year-old son, Beau Kyle.
“He doesn’t know any different,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I’m still on the floor with him playing. It may take me a few more seconds to get up than other moms, but he doesn’t look at me any differently, and that makes a huge difference for me too.”
