Like a thief in the night MS steals your old life, so it’s time to begin a new. In the early eighties my first symptom was vertigo. I was backing out of the driveway and as I looked around me I imagined being swallowed up by those tall pines. Fifteen years later it’s time to work on my memory. After 10 years of ignoring symptoms of stumbling, loosing balance and my eyesight going in and out of focus, I thought it was time to visit a neurologist. Living in Mississippi, the very first neurologist I saw was Dr. Paul Ingram. In 1991 I had my first M.R.I. After the test the Doctor spoke with a look of sympathy. He said, "You have Multiple Sclerosis," which I knew nothing about. Isn’t it funny how easy we forget but we’ll always remember the day of diagnoses. As my symptoms slowly increased, my focus and energy kicked into overdrive and pushed me to learn about this disease. After all the years of research and living it, I now know you can build a new life, despite the impairment. Don’t ever give up or I’ll be forced to call the “Whaaambulance.”
The title below will take you to a song my husband wrote. It sells on Amazon for only .99. Every penny of profit goes to help find a cure for MS. Please help me raise funds for the cure and keep a song in your heart.
