Hi all - glad to have found you and looking forward to getting to know you all. My name is Jo, I'm 45 living in GA and loving life! I'm a proud mum of 3 fantastic kids, I'm also a proud Army Mom - my 19 yr old son is en route to hot sandy places. He's having a ball, I'm a wreck, but a very proud wreck. I also have a 23 yr old son and a 13 yr old daughter who keep me on my toes!
I was dx in 2002 after going totally numb around my middle. I'm still flare free but have some nerve damage that affects my forearms and hands; I'm also heat affected - this summer has not been too much fun! I don't take any medication for my MS and have stopped all other meds other than painkillers occasionally and vitamins/herbal supplements.

Anyway, great to find you!

Irish blood, English heart, this I'm made of
There is no-one on earth I'm afraid of
And I will die with both my hands untied

Welcome, Proud Army Mom, from a Proud Army Wife :D

Have to appreciate your love for life. I love it, too, in spite of MS :)

Seems we have some commonalities. I don't take any MS meds, either. Only supplements. Did have steroidal IV therapy that helped, tho.

And, I hear you on the heat fatique/exhaustion issues. It's bad enough, here, in MD. Can't even imagine how much worse it must be in GA, right now. Very hard to stay cool, I'm sure 8)

Feel free to Personal Message me, anytime, for both MS and/or Army issues, too. Am very active in Family Readiness, and husband is a CO.

That is very beautiful. Oh, how I can relate.

Again, welcome, Jo!
