First thing is first. I’d like to welcome you to my blog. I appreciate you taking the time to read what I have to say. It means the world to me.
So who am I?
My name is Heather and I’m from a small town in southeastern Ohio. We’re so southeastern, most people think we’re in West Virginia. I am a Forensic Grad Student who has an interest in helping the youth in our communities; wherever that may lead me.
I was initially diagnosed in 2006 when I was 22 years old. Diagnosed with what, exactly? No one knew at the time. With a history of Mulitple Sclerosis in my family, I didn’t need a confirmed diagnosis to know what was wrong with me. I spent the following seven years not allowing any kind of obstacle to defining me.
By 2013, I had a relapse that left me ill from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day 2014. I had to give in. I knew I had to give in to get a definite diagnosis. By June 2014; I knew definitely what I had known previously: Relapse- Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
Why Have a Blog?
Well, I figured there were others out there going though the same journey or a similar one. I wanted to share my experiences and learn from others experiences as well.
We are brave. We are strong. We are fighters.
