Has it really been a week since my last blog entry??? How can that be!! I feel like the days are flying by and I'm not getting as much done as I would like. I've been busy working on my speaking, working on my memoir, updating my website and answering e-mails from people who have seen my story over the past few weeks (my favorite!).
Yes, I love that people are reaching out to to inform me that they find my journey both inspiring and hopeful. Better yet, I've had eight people tell me that they had a successful trial of L-dopa and are seeing results. Yes, I said EIGHT!!!!!! That's eight people who feel stronger than they did one month ago. This is why I share my challenges with the world. It really does help people!!! Please continue to share my story with your friends and family, so we can help even more people.
As always, I want to thank you for your support. If it wasn't for all of you who read this, I don't think my story would have gone viral and helped so many dealing with the same issues as me. I truly feel like I have been given an amazing gift and wouldn't change any of it!
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!
