I'm the mother of three boys, age 24, 22 and 20. I was diagnosed in October of 2011. I'm a musician and teacher, as well as the pet of a very sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a loving old terrier/chihuahua mix. Life has changed a lot for me since my diagnosis. I have been on 4 different DMDs, lived in three states, learned to fall with style, and discovered that I still expect miracles. My new/old partner challenges me and always says that I won't know that I can't do something if I don't try. Surprisingly, I'm succeeding more often than failing! Life is an adventure!
