13. One of my problems is that I now have permanent disability from multiple attacks of

Transverse myelitis. I am getting an attack now every 4 weeks or so, and with each week long attack I accumulate more weakness in my legs, numbness, spasms, problems walking and balancing, etc.

I no longer have any times where I am back to my old self.

MS as you know has a big range from almost 100% fine to bedridden and quadrapeligic like Annette Funicello was before she died.

My Aunt, a nurse, was shocked that I bought a walker and use it because she has fellow nurses who walk normally, run marathons, have years between flares and no symptoms between flares.
