Hi From Panama

Hi. I'm a U.S. citizen living in Panama. I was diagnosed with M.S. in 1995. I'm one of the lucky ones with recurring/recessive-my last occurance was in 2002 after a stressful divorce and move from the states-go figure! Anyway, after 2 weeks of double vision, I recovered and have been healthy ever since-barring bouts with fatigue and headaches. Good news- no drugs! Changed my diet-now vegetarian-no hydroginated oils-only olive oil, no fast food, no soda. ...

His body has had ...

Little introduction.

I am squiffy, though I cannot live up to my name, apart from the occasions when I fall over :O)

Live in southern England, still working (thank goodness) spend my leisure (ha) time raising funds for the MSRC through my Humour Site - Squiffy's House of Fun and also through my London Marathon page.

I am 47 years old and I was diagnosed Dec. 1st after an MRI following partial loss of vision in one eye.

Hello and questions...

Hello all,
