My husband of 35 yrs recently succumbed to multiple system atrophy. I found out what exactly he had after his death. I was unable to get the proper care for him while he was alive because our insurance was not willing to pay for anything to have him diagnosed. Learning about this devastating disease I have since realized that he had every single one of the symptoms. Now that I look back I realize he had every single one of the symptoms. Maybe it was better I didn't know and maybe it was better he didn't know before he suffered a stroke and choked to death. Now that I know how devastating this disease is I realize that we have to get the funding to try to help people to survive and even flourish after I diagnosis of MSA.
