Hi from Chocolate City, USA!

I'm 51 and have been diagnosed (Relapsing-Remitting) for just over 3 years. I also had a mild stroke in 2007 and two back surgeries (2011 and 2012) and a current herniated disc.

reengaging w/ ms stuff

this is mostly copy/pasted from a reintroduction I posted on a far less active board yesterday

My account has been dormant so long that I think I registered with an email attached to an ISP that I abandoned years ago.
