My Story 0 Appreciate this

In 2013 I lost vision in my right eye due to optic neuritis and was diagnosed with MS via MRI. My original diagnosis was reconfirmed in 2014 via lumbar puncture. I've been fighting MS along with three systemic autoimmune diseases with purpose. That purpose is to help as many people as possible. I have a beautiful family I love dearly. I was removed from my career due to symptoms/conditions caused by autoimmunity in 2015 and was devastated but I've picked up hobbies in place of some of the things I can no longer do. Nature and books make me smile. I'll never get used to having MS but I'm learning to live with it each day. I'll fight as long as I wake that's what warriors do, right? :)
