My name is Sarah Ellis and I am 28 years old. I have two beautiful children, a son who is 9 and a daughter who is 3. I'm married to an exceptional man who is a Pilot in the military. We currently reside in Southern California.
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis on October 29, 2009 and started Copaxone on November 7, 2009. On June 22, 2010, I learned that I actually have Devic's Disease (NMO) and not "typical" MS. After learning that, I made an executive decision and stopped taking my Copaxone on June 27, 2010.
Currently, I am on no medications for NMO but will be seeing Dr. Cree as UCSF in the very near future.
I will write a lot about my life in general, good and bad, and my relationship with NMO. I will also talk about health and fitness as I feel the only thing I can control, is how I care for and what I feed my body. I want to be as physically healthy and fit as possible so when my troubles with NMO worsen, I am better equipped to tell them to fuck off!
Cross your fingers for me and follow me along this journey.
