I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1995 when I was 20
and pursuing a paralegal degree. In 1999 I became very disabled
and had to stop working and go on social security disability.
In 2004 I had my son and found out I had been having ms
exacerbation's during my pregnancy that was attacking the gray
matter of my brain and not just my nerves in my spine, brain,
and optic nerve.
Since that time I have gone from being able to walk,
walk using stairs, cleaning my home, playing my violin, doing a
lot of baking and writing very legibly to being unable to do
these things. I am now 36 and very limited in what I can do and
unable to do many of the things I enjoy.
I value good health and the thing that keeps me going with
ill health is my family and my Faith in God,
Comments: I enjoy loom knitting. It is the one craft I have
found that I can do with my limited physical abilities. I enjoy
reading and do so as I can but it is not often. I love roses so
that is probably my favorite scent but if it is natural then it
is one of my loves.
My favorite color in green. The chocolate smell
is a favorite scent as well and since I am not tolerating it
very much anymore, just smelling it maybe the ticket for
my weight loss success.
