I am happily married with three adult children. Multiple Sclerosis, Erythromelalgia and Raynaud's have created a devastating chronic pain in my lower legs, feet and toes that has eluded any and all medical procedures and medications. My focus is on research and communication with people around the world to share information try to find some kind of relief from my pain. I also enjoy the lighter side of life with good friends and a supportive family. I hope to some day be able to again go places to visit or attend events without being in an isolating shell of pain.
I strive to be positive and energetic even though I'm in constant pain. I'm able to be engaged in life after having my left leg amputated above the knee in Feb., 2012. I enjoy swimming, writing, photography and playing my Martin 00-15M acoustic guitar.
