I’m a 43 year old married man that has a five year old son. I live in the New Orleans metro area. After eight grueling days in the hospital recently, I was diagnosed with remitting/relapsing Multiple Sclerosis.
I have been member of a computer technical support forum for over nine years now and have well over 15,000 post. That’s practically dating back to the stone age in computer terms. So if you have a PC problem, post it up I may be able to help. My first exposure to “the net” it wasn’t even commercial yet. You couldn’t even buy or sell anything on it, look how far the Internet has come. I also attended class at Tulane University for computers and ran service calls all over the Gulf South for over five years. But I went back to work wrenching on motorcycles, I just did not deal well with some of the politically-correct, anal-retentive, office types.
Just a little more back ground info, due to getting hit by a car as a child and some motorcycle accidents as a young adult, I’ve had five orthopedic surgeries, a bone graft in my neck, eighteen pieces of surgical hardware put into my body and ten taken out. I think that was God’s way of giving me little training missions for dealing with this MS. That all pales in comparison in having to learn to live with this MS.
Soon as my mental compass stops spinning about my recent diagnosis maybe I’ll have the time to author the book I want to do now. Just some fair warning about me, I have a dark sense of humor. I would never attack anyone here or hurt their feelings on purpose. But after what I have been through in life, can you really blame me for having such an odd sense of humor? I apologize now if I ever unknowingly hurt your feelings.
Enough of me, I hope I have found a second home of like-minded individuals on the net where I can share stories and do some research into MS. And maybe clown around with a bit, I could always use a good laugh.
As a fledgling, unpublished writer, I could go on forever.
