Hi, I’m Dani. I’ve had multiple sclerosis since 1998.
Getting diagnosed with MS is pretty shocking. The prognosis is grim and there is no cure. MS had no place in my self-identity and I was on the cusp of making the world my personal oyster.
For many years, I have been in and out of hospitals and deeply concerned about my future. Conventional medicine says MS means a near-certain path to deterioration and disability.
