My story

I am 35 years old and was diagnosed 3 years ago.

My symptoms were not bad at all until after i had my dear daughter in Sept 2011. It went downhill from there. I have to use a walker at all times. I never had the chance to hold and carry my baby girl. I sometimes question my faith as to why God would bless me with this beautiful lil girl, but not allow me the ability to care for her.

    Hi Melissa,
    You have been dealt a hard blow, but it sounds like you have a supportive husband and a beautiful family. I’m inspired that you are still working full time. That can’t be easy to do. Your positive attitude provides strength. I hope that you continue to enjoy your family for many years to come.
