Keep On S'myelin: The wild and wacky world of a wiped out mom with Multiple Sclerosis.
What makes my life wild and wacky...I'm a 33 year old mom with 2 kids, 2 cats, 1 husband, 1 mom, 1 brother, 1 mother in-law, 1 father in-law, 1 brother in-law, 1 sister in-law, great friends and multiple sclerosis. Phew, that should keep me busy for a while. In 1997, I was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome. In January 2000, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. What a way to bring in the new millenium!

dance classes because I felt too fat, not taking singing lessons
because I was too shy, not taking part in any sports because I felt
incapable of doing anything but making a fool of myself.

I'm actually a middle aged mother of three, and the first time I saw what is now the title of this blog as a graphic on a myspace page belonging to a silly little white girl who happens to live in Phoenix, my head almost exploded... living where I do, any glorification of gang violence hits real close to home.
God made me a Wife, Mother, Teacher, Daughter, Sister, and Friend, and I enjoy blogging about whatever's on my mind whether shallow or profound. I've blogged for about a year now (journaled before that), and I find it very therapeutic!...more
