About Me: Female, 42, Abbeville, LA, member since Jan 2011
I am a Young 32 year old Mom of 4 children. Cailyn Marie 12 yo, Chloe' Madison 10 yo, Connor Maddox 7 yo, and Joey Daniel 4 yo. I was recently diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, Otosclerosis, Spinal Stenosis and still doing MRI's and what seems like monthly blood tests
[More] to rule anything else out. The Chiari diagnoses was and is really hard on me, It has been alot to take in....for Myself and My family. It is especially hard because I lost My Mother and My Grandma just recently, I feel like i've been dealing with this head on and pretty much alone. No one understands but My Aunt and she lives 4 hours away. I know this sounds like a pity story, and I'm not asking for that at all....I just want and need understanding and finding this forum and speaking to others with my condition has helped me so much and I'm very much appreciative and Thankful. I still work part-time. I work at a restaurant, I try to stay as active as possible. I have always been an Outgoing, Full of Life type of person, Always a Smile on my face. I Love Love Love Life and Love People. All People, I Love God, I teach My children about Our Heavenly Father and His Love for us. I'll add more about me later when I find the time.
"An Updated MRI would be your best option. I'm shocked that your NS hasn't scheduled one. Call them today and express your symptoms and concerns. You are an Adult, and You are your own Advocate. Good Luck. Keep me updated. "
