The Flowery One

Hello SLM Community! Thank you for taking the time to check out my bio.  I’m Ashley and as you can probably gather, I love flowers; to me, there is nothing more beautiful!  I’m a big fan of tea, travel and books, and can very often be found amongst any (or all) of them throughout the day.

I’m 30 years old and was diagnosed in November 2013.  I’m still fairly new to this complex, confusing world and had my first ‘flare-up’, Optic Neuritis in my left eye in late April.  On a daily basis, I am challenged by fatigue, muscle spasms, brain fog, memory issues, anxiety and most recently, Lhermitte’s Sign.  I am a member of team Avonex, and utilize vitamins, a vegan diet, yoga, walking, research and writing as my approach to treatment.  I find myself inspired by this community and can’t help but feel proud of all of us for being here to support one another, it’s truly amazing!
