My name is Karen Lynn Jones,klj, and I am now 44 years old, the clock keeps ticking, and have a 11-year-old daughter named Leah. God is the head of our small family. The first 10 years of my MS battle, I ran, did not keep up with my MS meds mainly because I had no symptom. I felt untouchable! MS is definitely touching me now. I try daily not to let this disease win. I once said MS has the upper hand but now that I no longer take DMDs, vitamins make me feel more in control. I do not want anything or anyone to take my God given peace and joy.
I was blessed to go to college. I went to Clemson University. Yes I bleed orange! I majored in Industrial Engineering, for my mother, but when I got out of college, mostly worked as customer service rep. Sadly, I can't work to use my degree but it is helping me to get a comfortable amount from social security. But sadly, I still overspend! For years, I took MS meds because family made me feel I would be bedridden if I took nothing. I am now in a wheelchair and have problems talking/swallowing. When I just took vitamins, I felt GREAT! I am going back to vitamins and putting God more in my life!
