Hi! I was raised in Port Orchard, WA. I am currently married, but we are separated. I have an 8-YO daughter. I lived most of my adult life in western Washington, but I've lived from 2001-2009 in Hayden, ID. I am currently living a few miles south in Coeur d'Alene. I love it here!
I get all my medical treatment for my relapsing-remissive MS through the VA, because I am an Army veteran (1987-1991). I went to the Persian Gulf, and I started having MS symptoms 5 years after getting out, and I was officially diagnosed the following year.
My mother just died summer of 2009 after a 23+ year battle with chronic-degenerative MS. It was a long, slow decline into complete paralysis - but she kept on going! Even when she only had the ability to use one hand, she would use that hand to create beautiful needlework projects. She was a very strong woman. I can only pray that my MS doesn't go that way.
