My Story 0 Appreciate this

Born in 1969, diagnosed in 2012, 44 years old, born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, still there and like it. Sworn in as an attorney in 2009, clean and sober since 1988. Dr. told me I have Secondary Progressive relapse remitting MS. I said “Doc, I think I have PPMS". His nurse practitioner agreed with me, (many tests including MRIs were done) he told me we had nothing more to discuss. I work part time, love my mom and dad and have a great attitude and feel well, and walk a little funny. When people ask me how I am feeling or doing I say it’s a 2 part answer: how I feel, on a scale of 1-10, 10 being good, I am a 12. The severity of MS kickin my butt, on a scale of 1-10, 1 being severe, I am a 2. But life is good. The best rock-n-roll song ever is Slowride by Foghat. .However, the greatest rock-n-roll band ever is the Rolling Stones.
