Life was just fine until the day I woke up and had a blind spot in the vision field in one eye. That was in November 2008. One optometrist, one opthalmologist, and two neurologists (one local and one at Ohio State University) and plenty of tests, I have been diagnosed with MS. I discovered that it is in my father's family. After the diagnosis and suggested treatment plan I started my search for information on the drugs and then alternative therapy. I decided that if others could successfully beat this without drugs then it is certainly worth the effort change my lifestyle.
My reasons for this choice are really simple, the optic neuritis is my only symptom, the rest are just an occasoinal annoyance. I have just left my job to dedicate myself to keeping my current status and winning this battle to kick out the MS. I have daughters and grandchildren to give these lessons to if they would ever need them.
