Loved Your Article A Good MSer
by Rosanne Castillo-Romero
Hi, my name is Rosanne Romero. Am Filipina and live in the Philippines where MS is not a "well-known" disease...or a disease that is not commonly understood.
I was only 33 when I was first diagnosed with MS (am now 54!) and when I started to use a cane, people would actually stop and watch me amble about. Very annoying. Made me feel like a performing poodle.
And then when I had to switch to using a motorized wheelchair (an Amigo), things only got worse. The first time I used it to go shopping, the guard at the mall entrance refused me entry saying such toys weren't allowed inside the mall. I kid you not.
Am so glad to have stumbled upon your site. My daughter got me started on a blog at rosanneromero.wordpress.com
