My name is Kim. I was diagnosed in November 2018 during a flare up. I am a third grade teacher and wife and mother and I thought I was losing my mind and becoming a lazy bum. The diagnosis was somewhat a relief as it explained so much of the fatigue and other symptoms I had noticed. MS continues to have a major impact on my life as I find myself often unable to do the things I need or have to do much less the things I want to do.
