Hi, my name is Rebecca. I am 46 years old, and boy some days I feel a whole lot older than this. I'm a divorced, single mum. Miss O and I have been by ourselves since early 2007. I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in July 2012, although according to my neurologist I've had MS for a very long time. Just for how long, I don't really want to know but thinking about it I'm sure since my early twenties. In 2000 I had so many issues and symptoms. For a whole year, I was at the GPs, two or three times a week! I'm sure he cringed every time he saw me in the waiting room. Long story short, after every test known to man, except an MRI or lumbar puncture ( which weren't clinically indicated )I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in 2001. I'm sure I probably did have anxiety, I thought I was going to die, there was something really, really wrong with me! Well there was something wrong, just not what I was diagnosed with. Unfortunately after this diagnosis, I dismissed most of my symptoms as anxiety related thus I have loads of damage.
Fast forward to 2015, I'm still working, these days I'm a nurse, although not full time anymore, can't quite manage that. Most of my issues are still invisible but if you watch me closely you will notice some of my major ones.
