Great thread Rhonda! Well, let’s see here…I love plants and animals, and spend a lot of time with my flowers and fish and frogs in the garden. I have a long-term boyfriend, and we just added to our family this weekend…a little baby parrotlet (the smallest true parrot). I have been talking baby talk to a tiny parrot all week, and getting excited over things like perfect parrotlet poops! I am in love already!
I’m not able to work right now, but it is one of my greatest wishes to be able to again someday. Other things I enjoyed in the past include dancing and traveling. I have gone round and round with this MS thing over the past few years. I have “had” CIS (one MS attack) then was told I had moved on to MS and started on Copaxone, then undiagnosed, referred to an MS specialist who said, “what else can it be” but at the next appointment was saying it was CIS. At my most recent appointment he was back to calling it MS, but I don’t know whether my official diagnosis is MS or CIS at this point. I am so confused, so I just try and stick to my plants and my critters as much as possible.
This is a great thread, Rhonda. I have been taking a little break from this place. I am still laying low but I thought I would post to this thread so you wouldn't forget me. I am married to a great guy, Tim. We have two sons; Jimmy (14) and Teddy (11). I teach 5th grade in a public school. I love all things animal. I have two staffordshire bull terriers. One is a retired show dog who also happens to be the breed rep. in the AKC complete dog book. I have a cat, a horse, a cockatiel and a goldfish. I enjoy reading (when my eyes are up to tracking correctly). I love movies. I am a baseball fan.
I love life even with MS. I enjoy talking to and supporting others with MS.
Hey everyone! I am a university professor and teach full time. I teach Political Science so I have been very busy the past few months. I have to admit that I am also so ready for this election to be over. I love to read (mysteries, legal thrillers, government thrillers, etc.), and hate to grade papers and tests. I also enjoy movies. The weather has been beautiful here for the past few weeks, and the leaves are just starting to change color. My dream is to one day own a book store in Cape Cod. I would name it "Rock and Read." Now I just need to hit the lottery .
I was dx on March 29, 2007. MS is stable (I think) even though I have not been able to tolerate CRAB's or tysabri.
I am late getting on here to welcome you. I have been out of town visiting another member here, "sunnycitrus". You have certainly made yourself right at home!! This pleases me of course.
