It just so happend that I moved after recieving my new diagnosis. It was part of the plan prior to my life being turned upside down for the better. When I meet someone for the first time, I know that they are completly unaware of the road I have traveled. Sometimes I choose to share my story and other times I decide to keep it to myself so I can appear "normal" for another day. Overtime, I end up telling my story because not only enjoy sharing my miracle, but it can be fun to see the reactions of others.
For the past year, I have been chatting with a woman at the YMCA either before or after my workout. Today was the day that I gave her the short version of my story. She looked back at me with big eyes and commented on how far I have come and followed it up with, "You should write a book!" It's definatly a conversation I will remember for a long time.
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
