Receive Infusions Every 28 Days
That worked well back when I first started getting the medicine pumped into my veins back in 2010. Was able to move around much better for the following 28 days. Now, the effect lasts maybe a week at most!
By 2014 a meager 3 weeks was a good run from an infusion. 2015 2 weeks was tops for retaining my strength. Now a week is the most I retain my muscle strength!
Just To Let You Know
Suffer from a chronic disease known as Multiple Sclerosis My mother might have it, but will not let doctors diagnose her with it. Her sister (my aunt), and both her daughters(my cousins) have it. Her son and my two brothers do not have it. Only time will tell if my 2 nieces (my 2 brother’s female kids) start showing signs of MS!
We think my grandma (mom’s mother) may have had it, but since she was suffering from self induced cancers (cigarette smoker till the day she died), she didn’t want to go through with any testing. The regular falling over her own feet should have set off warning signs!
The Picture Of Me
At the start of this page shows me in my manual wheelchair. Am forced to rely on it to move around in the world today. Fortunately, still have the strength to transfer myself from the wheelchair to other places without too much difficulties. Transfer my self to my recliner, toilet, floor (how else could I play with our cat?), bed, you get the idea!
Gave up driving years before we moved into our house. Rely now on a service called Metro Mobility. They pick me up at the end of my wheelchair ramp which starts at our back door. The ramp was built for me by Ramps.org . They based our eligibility to have the ramp built completely free of charge on copies of our last two years income tax paperwork.
Since MS runs in my blood line, we decided not to have children. Why curse an innocent child with an incurable disease? We just settled for adopting pets. Have great kids in the neighborhood in which we live currently!
Do NOT spread chronic diseases if at all possible! If your desire for kids is too much, there are plenty of children up for adoption already. Since I am confined to a wheelchair, taking care of a child would be more than I could handle. Also posses a short temper when faced with imperfections. Face it, kids make mistakes, I’d blow up over their messes to quickly!
