A little about Lisa:
I was diagnosed Dec 12,2003, a year after an automobile accident that even after cervical fusion surgery was a blessing. Finally someone knew and found out that there was really something wrong and not just in my head, lol.
It was upsetting though and after the shock and some treatments it finally came to me - OK - I always have been a fighter. This is something that I can fight and I will not allow to take me down. And at the same time, I was a new grandmother and 2 more on the way. Those babies made a big difference in my life, and more to fight for.
I have only had 6 months of hard MS treatments. The neuro informed me my Protein and Antibody count was the highest of any other MS patient he had. And mainly due to health insurance, but after my neuro dropped me, my PC since 2004 has kept me "under his wing".
A lifesaver also, and let me tell you I was an employee at a hospital. HIS Information Specialist and knew too much to not worry, but I am sure I wasn't the only one. I asked too many questions also. My insurance WAS with the hospital where I worked and he was in THEIR Group.
Enough of that, too depressing to think about. Back to my granddaughters(4), who came into my life when I needed them most, and THEY, with my religion, have kept me going. Oh I have BAD weeks and can't go out then, but they know "where mamaw" lives.
Being the only girl in my family, MY BEST FRIEND from high school is also my pusher I call her. She pushes me to keep going. And with this MS mess, I have met SO MANY good friends now, so it does have its advantages.
