About Me: Female, 34, Sweet Home, OR, member since Jan 2013
I am a happily married, mother of 4 boys. I have stayed at home over the last year as I have been unable to work due to medical issues. I have a new diagnosis of MS which explains all the chaos with my health changes over the past year. Chris and I were married in Augus
[More]t of 2011 and by November 2011 I was in a wheel chair and my life was changing drastically! We were both active archery hunters and my life consisted of hiking, camping in the wilderness without the ammentities of a campground. I have a Bachelor of Science in Business and Bachelor of Science in Law and half of my post grad done toward a Juris Doctorate. I have gone from this active, smart, fun woman to full blown symptoms of MS. Confusion, double vision, neurogenic bladder, self cathetering full time, poor cognative functions, balance, paralysis of left leg, being in a wheel chair, needing help showering, not able to drive, tingling and numbness, burning pain in hands and legs, weakness in lower extremities, vasavagel syncope, chronic antibiotic resistant infections. I have overcome cervical cancer and 8 back surgeries. I am very strong willed and am pretty stubborn when it comes to giving up my independence. I have learned to trust in God and that His love never fails. I have learned to trust in my husband, Chris because he truly loves me and takes great care of me. That's me in a nutshell :) Want to know anything about me just ask.
Welcome to our community! This really is a great place tohang out, ask questions, and learn a lot more about MS. I hope youi come back, share what's happening with you and learning from the experiences of others. - Laura
