I live just south of Fort Worth. I'm 49, and was diagnosed with MS 14 years ago. At the time of my diagnosis my feet were having strange sensations and I had some numb spots. A friend brought me Swank's book, and I read it and decided to follow it. A couple of years later, I learned about Jelinek's first book, and started implementing his suggestions too. I followed the diet very carefully for many years, but the last three years I started to let it slide. Then, last December, my Mother died, who I was very close to. In the past six months, I've started seeing lots of symptoms develop. I discovered Jelinek's newer book from 2010 in August, which had quite a few changes from his original book. I've now started that new way of eating and have been on it for about a month. My fatigue is better. The pain in my legs is better. I've started exercising and getting sun (easy in Texas). I've found this website, and am slowly taking it all in and learning a lot. I'm married and have 3 teenagers, so I'm very motivated to do anything I can to feel better.
