My Story 0 Appreciate this

I am 31 years old, I started having symptoms around Thanksgiving 2014 (in retrospect, it was a little earlier than that, but that was what made me go see the doc). I was diagnosed in Feb 2015. Started Copaxone in March. Born in Austin, TX, still live in the area. I went to the Science Academy of Austin at LBJ, where I filled my head with all kinds of math and science and skipped as many english classes as possible. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 13 years. I work at an insurance carrier while I’m figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. I have a job that pays the bills. A husband, a dog, and a house that I dearly love. I fill my free time with sewing, quilting, crocheting, kniting, drawing, playing video games, board games, and table top RPG’s, and watching whatever I can find on Netflix. https://www.facebook.com/lauren.kearbey
