About candaceschultz

I got married, then 3 months later I was in the hospital with my first documented attack. I saw an uniformed neurologist that ruled it as a stroke / probable MS and sent me on my way. Then, about 9 months later, I had my second attack, got on a waiting list to get with UTSW Medical Center's Multiple Sclerosis Clinic. I was blessed to get in on someone else's cancelled appointment and have had great specialists since. I have a 5 y/o daughter.

Hi! I'm Candace. I live in Texas and love being a southern belle. I have been happily married for 6 years and have a beautiful 3 year old girl.

I am on S.S. Disability as my MS came on strong in the beginning, but we have all been there.

I look forward to hearing others stories and how they cope.
