I thank God for helping the doctors find out what I had and performed the surgeries I needed to implant the shunts that I needed... I wouldn't be here right now. I had trouble with math when I was in Elementry school but after havng a tutor I was able to get the hang of it. Then after that I had trouble with English classes. For years I was unaware that I had a learning disability, but I was able to go mainstream and granduated on time. Then in 2002, I took a test at a college I was at and then I found out I had a LD. I started to get help with my studies then. I believe my LD effects my social life, education and other stuff. My LD is Nonverbal Learning Disability which is associated with my disability.
Thank you for sharing your story I struggled through school...but it wasnt until recently my therapist suggested my having ADD(which possibly contributed toward lower grades and my struggles with school).
I was dx with Ulcerative Colitis in 2002. At first it was just weight loss and lots of diarrhea. But then came the blood and constant stomachaches. Shortly after my dx I was hospitalized and then completly disabled from work. This year alone(2006) I have been on prednisone three seperate times plus another steriod called Enotcort. They are used to stop the inflammation of my colon. I just CANNOT stop flaring at all and I am beginning to lose hope. Having UC affects my dailey life because there are days I CANNOT leave my home...sometimes up to a week at a time. I may cancel my NEEDED doctors appointments because I am just too ill to even be at the appointment. I have lost the ability to control my bowels. ONLY while flaring,I acnnot control them. If I have the urge to "GO" then I need to find that toliet NOW...otherwise I will have an accident. This also really affects my life with my family,my children,my husband. I cant always play with my kids because my stomach feels like it is being chewed apart. My husband wants to be a "normal" 27 year old...go out with friends,go out as a couple/adult and have fun. I hae to turn him down alot because of my being ill.
I was dx with Multiple Sclerosis in August of this year(2006). Although I am newly dx with MS,I have had this for "at least five years"--per my neurologist. I believe it's closer to 8yrs. I have a constant Fog feeling around me...which I am told is from excessive sleepiness,that comes along with have MS. I feel like a third party in my own life...like I am 'floating' above watching my life in slow motion. I get constant naggin' headaches and migraines. My muscles and joints are always stiff. If I sit too long or stand in one position to long my body hurts. Sleeping is nice,but waking up in the moring I am in PAIN because of the stiffness. I have cognitive memory loss and confusion...people find this very funny. As if I am joking...but it's not funny,it's sad to feel confused in life...or what just happened and you cant figure it out. My hands,feet and face go numb when I become over heated...well geez,everything stops working when I become over heated. I have terrible vertigo that makes everyday things a challenage becase of the dizziness.
