My Story 1 Appreciate this

I'm 51 and have been married for 23 years. My husband is amazing and I'm still amazed he puts up with me! Lol We live in AZ, originally from WA but spent 9 years in Detroit, helping to plant an inner-city church. My husband and I were the children's pastors before moving to AZ to be closer to my parents. We have 5 children ~ 3 boys, 33, 30 and 16 and 2 girls ~ 25 and 21 and 4 gorgeous grands ~ 8, 4, 3 and18 months;~) God is so good! MS came into my life in 2012 but in looking back I can see different things that I noticed way back that were symptomatic. When I first had my ms "episode", I thought it was a stroke and I was so relieved it was ms! Hahahaha. I was feeling very awkward at work and thought I was overly tired because I had been working so many hours. I was walking awkward and then having a hard time thinking, just kinda loopy. I went home and then really began to have difficulty speaking which scared me and kept falling over. My husband rushed me to the ER and they took me right away, also thinking it was a stroke. Long story short, mri's, spinal taps, etc. diagnosis: MS
