It was 1993. I was going to work at University Hosp in Oklahoma City, OK when I lost part of my vision and ended up in a field alone in the dark at 6 A.M. After a long wait a police officer knocked on my car window. He took me back home. My husband called doctors and got me an appointment. It took several visits and a surgery on my neck, which I had needed, but which didn't help my condition; but, eventually I was diagnosed with MS. That was 24 years ago. I lost my career, my vision, and I almost lost my mind before I finally got the news. I learned to adapt. I took Betaseron for three years, then Copazine came out so I switched to that. I took it until 2013 when my husband died. Since then I have learned to adapt even more. I am a retired Medical Technologist. I live with my two cats. I have Relapsing Remitting. I have few other health problems. I am a 65 year old widow. I take care of myself, and I do OK.
