When I was told I have this disease, I thought I was given a death sentence. When this first began, I would stiffen and then fall backwards. A year or two later, I started getting spasms. I have other heath problems, and the doctors were blaming each other on responsibility. I have lived with this for awhile. I don't say I have good days and bad days anymore, because it is getting worse to where it happens every minute of every day. I try to do things around the house, but can only do them for a few minutes before I have to rest again. I have to take lots of medications every day, and I don't want to. Sometimes I feel as if I don't know who I am any more. All I want is for it to all go away; to be normal!
