THE STORY:

I am a 46-year-old female, on May 4, 2012; I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. This is a very rare form of MS, which affects only about 10% of those with MS. The prognosis is bleak, no treatment and no cure; you will progressively get worse as your body is slowly paralyzed. Nice outlook. I was told this by a neurologist at the Mayo clinic, she was my second opinion. She wanted to refer me back to the original doctor, since there is nothing she could do for me. My heart sank, I have always been a very active and athletic person, how can this be happening to me? I decided to go for a third opinion. The University of Florida’s teaching hospital, Shands, has a very comprehensive MS program, so I decided to see what they had to say. They told me the same thing. No treatment or cure. So, I had to take matters in my own hands. I quit my very stressful job so I could focus on my recovery. This is my journey.
