I was diagnosed with RRMS in 1984, about 2 1/2 months after I got married - I was only 19.
I moved from Michigan to Florida with my new husband and we had our first son a year later. We moved back to Michigan after 4 years in the Navy. Approximately 4 years later we had our second son. I had only a handful of attacks during all this time, never any as severe as my first one.
However, now that I'm in my 40s, I am suffering from all these years of nerve damage and require the use of a cane. I currently take Amantadine for fatigue, 4-AP for symptoms, Gilenya, a multi-vitamin, Super B Complex, and 2000 IU of vitamin D.
It takes me about an hour in the mornings for my meds to take full effect, but I am so grateful that I DO wake up each morning. Our youngest son now has a 1 year old boy and a beautiful wife and both our boys are thriving, wonderful human beings!!!
I say live your life to the fullest possible and enjoy it all!!
