I was a busy young lady just starting out my career when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It was September of 2010 and the doctor gave the news shortly after a round of tests following an episode of optic neuritis. A year later I started taking a disease modifying therapy, and as much as I dislike needles and injecting myself, I have never skipped a dose. In my spare time you can find me at the gym, with my friends, shopping, enjoying a glass of wine or planning my next vacation. I don’t see my MS as a road block in my life but more of a speed bump. These days I just want to spread awareness about this crazy disease!
