It took me 7 years to find a doctor who didn’t tell me I needed to see a shrink! I was beyond angry. I did my own research and had boiled it down to three things. Finally, after 7 years, I went to a neurologist who tested me and said, “I think you have MS, but, I am not sure”. He referred me to the University of Chicago.

I went to a neurologist he referred, did a lot of testing, he showed me every result and explained in depth that I had MS. I cried! Not because of the diagnosis, but because I was finally relieved! At that point, he said I was a good candidate for the Betaseron study that lasts three years. I was accepted into the study and was extremely grateful. I have Relapsing Remitting MS. With all testing, have around 35 lesions between brain and spine. No, it’s no fun, but, I decided right there to name it Cousin It.

“It” was not going to get in front of me! It’s been around 40 years, since my diagnosis. Have my good and bad days, but Cousin It is still behind me! I truly believe that by not dwelling on it every day, has been the best way for me. I always look for the positive and count all my blessings. My husband is my biggest one! Life goes on, the sun shines, and the moon is beautiful. I stayed as active as I can be. I wish many people with MS would put it into a perspective and not let it consume them! Everyone is different, though. I am still a blessed woman!
