I have MS but MS doesn’t have me

I am a 50 + year old lady, married with a grown up son, I was diagnosed with Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis in 2013, at the time I had a good job as a customer service manager, I drove to and from work and attended meetings with company directors, things were going well until that one day in July 2013 when my husband and I attended a meeting with my Consultant who told us the results of 14 months of testing, the result was I had SPMS. Please read my blog I started to record my journey through life with MS, I hope you find it useful and humous, I have received many positive comments. please pass on the site to anyone you feel would benefit from reading it. Many thanks Amazon lady.

    I am in the same age bracket and have SPMS and a rare blood disorder called polycythemia Vera. I just recently had to use a power wheelchair full time. I still like to work when I can in my husband’s real estate company. I used to teach but couldn’t anymore. My husband is my very best friend and is very supportive! We have 9 children between us (yours,mine, and ours)! Our youngest is 14. I live in Massachusetts and need to find a new MS specialist. I also like to cook and I’m trying to find a power wheelchair that will raise me into an upright position. Do you or anyone out there have a recommendation for either a god MS specialist in my area and/or a power wheelchair that can stand so I can resume cooking for my family? I know it’s a tall order, but I’d appreciate the feedback! Thanks
