My MS Diagnosis
MS never stopped me
That never stopped me then. I completed a full 42km marathon in 1991. I taught until 2018, and completed three degrees and a masters. Got married, and had three kids.
Fast forward to 2011. My symptoms became worse. I lost my balance, stopped running, and suffered incontinence, as well as other classic symptoms. Got divorced. The neurologist basically told me that my condition is primary progressive MS.
These days I use a walker. I used to use a cane, then two, starting 2011.
I still go to the gym and workout relatively often. I lift weights to stay fit. Running is a distant memory. Falling is sadly commonplace.
I'm still fighting to maintain fitness.
Well, I guess that's a good mini biography. Thanks for reading.
