5 Years Later
Well, I almost missed it! It was 5 years ago last week on August 13th that my double vision kicked in while I was at work. This was my diagnosing symptom. 5 years! If you click over on the right there, you can see my very first posting I did a few months later about that time in my life.

A lot has changed. Including my eyes! My vision is better than before the double vision! Weird to have healed to be stronger than before getting all gimpy. My health today is pretty damn good. I changed many things in my life (things I won't be going into here, email me if you like) and now I can work more, I can hike 7kms with or without numb legs and I'm on the clinical trial drug Fingolimod that seems to be doing what it's intended to do. I even had the opportunity to overcome my needle phobia on the clinical trial as I injected "Avonex" for the first year of the clinical trial. Okay, it turned out to be sugar water in those needles, but still. Grateful to not faint every time I give blood!

So as much as I like to sometimes hate on my MS, for the most part I'm pretty damn happy with where I'm at in my life and I'm no longer as afraid as I used to be to try new things for fear my MS will make me fail.
