I am a 58 year old widowed since 1992 I have 2 sons. Bryan and Brad and 5 granchildren. I work a part time seasonal job. I was DX'd with MS in 2000, when I developed drop foot. I became very afraid but then snapped out of the poor me stuff. Since Bill died I was working 2 jobs taking little time for me and my health. Most of the time I was so busy I forgot to eat, I wasn't sleeping well. When I was told about the MS they said, stress from the unexpected death of Bill was most likely when the MS started. Since 2000 I started to take care of me!
The biggest problems I have with the MS is fatigue and the heat. I can be standing in a air conditioned room and the sweat is pouring off my face and my hair is soaked.
I live with my dog (Lady) my golden doodle and 2 cats Patches and Tiger. I love the summer and hate winter. I enjoy summer, I love to be outdoors working in my garden, and playing with Lady.
Every other weekend my 2 oldest grandchildren spend the weekend with me. Cameron is 12 and Cayla is 9. My grandkids are the reason I am taking good care of me. They never had the chance to meet their grandpa so I plan on sticking around for a long time.
