not under 35 now…

I was under 35 when I was diagnosed. At that time, I used to go to the gym or work out 5-7 days a week, and I was a certified personal trainer and aerobics instructor. My activities were curtailed when I first got sick, of course, but after I found the right neurologist and right treatment, I was back at the gym a month after being released from the hospital. I eventually was able to run 2-3 miles a day (it took two years of training, but hey, at least I did it). Then I relapsed again. And again. Each relapse takes more of my strength, but 12 years later I still go to the gym 4-5 times a week.
