So, Again. my name is Rob. I live in Chicagoland, I have MS, Type 1 diabetes and dozens of surgeries. My MS went undiagnosed for many many years and since has progressed to secondary progressive. I suffer from amazing pain, and at the moment low quality of life. Working on changing that. I am looking for people to share with, help each other, but not cry over spilled milk people. What is, is and I am no cry baby. So sorry if this comes across harsh. Not meant to be.
I am an about 10 meds. From Aubagio, Opana Er, Baclofen and about 6 more I can not spell. Diazepam. I can spell that one. All in high dosage. All add to my MS caused exhaustion. I suffer from left leg and arm numbness and weakness with foot drop. Thoracic back pain rated at a 10. With my litany of injuries and surgeries. That is saying a lot. Those are just to name a few. If you want more info, please feel free to ask. I would be so happy to talk. I have been on employers disability for 3 month, probably never going back. This makes me incredibly sad. I love what I do.
I have an absolutely amazing family and friend support structure, but as most of you can attest to. No-one truly understands. Why is the saying? something about you don't get it, until you get it.
Anyway, I am so looking forward to making connections here!
