Being a wife and mother can be hard. It's made even harder when you have Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP), a disease very similar to Multiple Sclerosis, and Fibromyalgia like I do which is why I've decided to get Swank-y with SparkPeople!

In an effort to stop the damage my immune system is doing to my nervous system, stay out of a wheelchair, and lose the weight I've gained thanks to the medication I'm on, I'm following the Swank MS Diet with SparkPeople's help.

While I live in East Texas, I'm looking for friends and Spark Buddies, regardless of location. I'm looking for friends both with and without my diseases so feel free to add me!
