I am a wife of 20 yrs. this October 1, 2013 to my Soulmate and Awesome husband, who has been there for me through so many medical problems. I am a mother and we have a 28 yr. old son, a 23 yr. old daughter and an 18 yr. old daughter. We also have 3 Grandchildren with one on the way, due at the end of August 2013. I have Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and had the beginning stages of Breast Cancer and had to get a Mastectomy in 2008. When I was younger and we first met, I had to have several Laparoscopies among other medical issues and surgeries.

In January 2013 I had a Really Bad MS attack that put me in the Hospital for almost a month, then I had to go through physical therapy because the entire left side of my body was paralyzed from the attack and I couldn't feed myself or walk by myself. I also had trouble speaking and remembering things. They put me on very high doses of Steroids and I am now at home and weaning off of Prednisone which is why I have gained so much weight, 50 pounds😱. I am almost off of the prednisone, I think it will be finished sometime in August 2013. So I decided that I need to change and watch what I eat and "try" to exercise somehow to help me loose weight and tone up. I have never been this big, even when I was pregnant for my 2 children. I have always been thin and I looked like I worked out when I was in my early 20's, but I used to go out dancing for several hours on the weekends and got muscles, abs, etc. from that 😃. I can't dance anymore because of the MS 😢which is upsetting, but I guess I will have to deal with it the best I can.

We also have a lot of pets- 2 Great Danes a male & female, a female cat who is 17 yrs. old that we adopted with her brother who passed away at the end of last year. We have 2 Ferrets a male & female, a rabbit, and a male Hamster along with 2 fish whew!
