My Story 0 Appreciate this

I first developed balance, and walking problems in May 2014 on the campus of my college when a campus police officer thought that I was drunk at 8:30 in the morning. At the time, I had no clue what was wrong with me, and finally after 8 months of tests, I received a confirmed diagnosis of MS. Needless to say I have always led a very healthy lifestyle, and this was a true shock to me, as the symptoms appeared 3 weeks before my 40th birthday. Now my entire life has been flipped upside down, and I intend to finish my college degree as soon as I can.
