First, I want to explain what the picture above
represents to me.  I see that picture as a symbol of an independent, strong woman.  I just wanted to let you all know, because people have asked me
what that picture is.  OK, onto other things, lol.
Well, I'm 29 and I have Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
I was diagnosed at the age of 27.
I am single with no children.  I would love to fall in love again and have children, but until I find the "right" guy, then I'm content with myself and being single.
I have definitely learned a thing or two about men since becoming ill.  I'm  not saying all men are the same, but there are a lot of guys out there who can't look beyond their own insecurities and stand by the women that they say they love.
Or then again, they are too scared of this disease and don't want to admit it.  But there is nothing to be scared of.
About one year after being diagnosed with MS, I had to go on Social Security Disability.
The symptoms of this disease just got to be too much for me to handle work too.  I'll go into the many different symptoms that this disease can produce under my section "symptoms".
I do miss working, but I've been trying to learn new things and I'm even trying to learn how to design web sites, lol! Just a note, I've only been into building web pages since September of 2001 when I made my first website, so if you want to comment and give me some feedback, I'd appreciate it!
I've just recently picked up paint shop pro and animation shop, so I'm trying to learn how to design my own backgrounds.  It's slow going, but eventually I'm sure I'll get the hang of it, as I've always enjoyed art.  It's just learning how to do the art via computer instead of by hand.
I use to work in a nursing home.  My ex's mom got me into that business.  I stayed with the same nursing home for 9 years.  In fact,  I was even a patient in the same nursing home after I first got sick, which I'll talk to you more about later in detail,  under "my diagnosis process"
