My name is Steve, and I was unexpectedly afflicted with MS ten years ago. It came as a complete shock because nobody in my family ever had it, and no warning signs preceded the day the first symptoms appeared.
My goal is to enlighten those of you who may have a family member or a loved one who has the disease, or to provoke a smile, a laugh or a nod of understanding for anyone who, like myself, has to cope with the aggravations, inconveniences and embarrassments that our symptoms thrust upon us.
One word of caution: I am not a technically savvy individual. I don’t have a smart phone yet, although that will change soon, and until recently I have not been plugged into the social media scene. My computer skills are very limited at best, so I am sure this site will experiences a number of changes, some unintentional, until I am happy with the final product.
I want to share the experience of what it was like to have lived a perfectly active and “normal” life for almost fifty years before having to cope with a disability that changed everything, including my perspective. I hope you enjoy the ride.
