About Me: Female, 59, Dayton, OH, member since Jul 2008
MS is eroding my brain but not my spirit - I was officially dx'd in September 2008 but have probably had this lurking in my body for at least a decade. I am one of several community co-leaders here and find it very satisfying to connect with all of you. Patient-to-pati
[More]ent advocacy is the strongest connection that I know of to make us better, mentally and physically.
My life as a heart and MS patient is pretty much an open book - there are lots more details in my journal entries.
Thanks for reaching out...I have a slightly more unusual perspective. Not just a mom, but a Paramedic. Hard to reconcile the two sometimes...I doubt my daughter appreciates it, as sometimes she needs MOM, while I am busy observing, absorbing/learning, and even at times protecting her from medical errors.
Thank you for the note! (I sometimes go straight to the forum and neglect to look at my profile, so I missed it until just now). That sentiment means a lot coming from someone like you. I really value the community here and like to think I add my little bit to it. Thanks again!
