I used to bike ride and walk alot. I started having trouble lifting my leg over the curb. I went to the doctor. He could not find what was wrong. Eventually I lost my eyesight. When it came back I knew what was wrong. I went to the library (there was no internet then) and read up on MS and thought I knew what I had. I was 34 when I was diagnosed. My worse symptom is balance. My biggest challenge is raising my 3 daughters. I hope someday to hold my grandbaby while standing up alone. I think it helps to see things as they are, but always have a sense of humor.
