Black Patent Shoes Dancing With MS

The funny symptoms began the summer I was 8 years old and I was told it was my imagination-run outside and play.

Loss of sight at 16 was blamed on reading too much. After I was totally immobilized in 1967 ms was diagnosed. I was told I would never recover and to get my affairs in order - I didn't have long.

But I DID recover and returned to work 3 months later in pharmacology research lab at veterinary college where I began to review medical and scientific research.

First work I found was proof that remyelination occurs naturally, and I knew that I would always recover. With every episode of disability, there was someone to predict the worst. I am now 69, and symptom free.
