Ok, here goes...

Hi. My name is Ronnie, and I have had MS since 1990 (optic neuritis), although I didn't get a real diagnosis until 1994.

I have a daughter who will turn 13 in December. I am 45 going on 46, and I feel like I am 45 going on 46. I teach computer graphics part time at San Antonio College. My husband teaches full time at the same college. He teaches three-dimensional computer animation, using the program Lightwave. He is pretty darn cool.

I have two dogs, Valerie and Ziggy. I was raised by cats, but then I developed an allergy to cats, so now I have dogs.

I have been on Betaseron, Copaxone, Novantrone, Rebif, Tysabri, and then Copaxone again. Currently I am on Copaxone.

That is it.

Hi Ronnie,

You made me long for good old San Antone! I went to SAC back in the early 80s. Lived there for many years until the good old USAF sent me to Japan :?

Finally found my way back home to Southern Indiana. DX just recently and have found much confort in the shared wisdom and experiences of the people here.

I have many fond memories of many years in Texas. I'll be watching for you in the future. Be well :wink:
