About heathercf75

I was Diagnosed on 02/14/2000. I was able to get by with a few relapses. A couple years ago, I was o.k. until I got a horrible tooth infection that made my M.S. so bad that I almost died. I had to get so many treatments over two years to keep me here.More About heathercf75 Well, how I survived an Abusive Marriage, I can only say is because I Loved my kids & wanted to live. The Marriage, ended when he received 17 years in Leavenworth, Federal Prison. For what he did to me and my sons on December 13, 1999. Then while fighting for a Divorce, I got Bronchitis in January 2000, that got so bad I was coughing up Blood and started getting numb from my neck down. I finally went to the ER and like 8 hrs. later, after Cat Scan, Spinal Taps, MRI's, I was told it's either Lupus (they doubted it though) or Multiple Sclerosis. I asked will M.S. kill me? They told me no you can actually survive and not have any more problems. I said o.k., at least it's not a Brain Tumor, or Cancer. Even though my family freaked out and can never understand how easily I can accept things. I mean come on what other choice do you have? I don't have time to sit with them at the Pity Party.
