My Story 0 Appreciate this

I am lucky to have a slow-progressing form of primary progressive MS. I'm 74 and still walking around somewhat. My other symptoms are mild though somewhat disabling. My husband and I moved to the DC area in 2011 because Midwest winters felt increasingly hazardous and a big two-story house and large yard were too burdensome. We have a son and his family here. It's been a challenge building new social connections here and figuring out ways to fully take advantage of this wonderful town and all it has to offer. I'm hoping to start a blog chronicling this experience.
