From the beginning of March, 2010 through June, I was fighting a losing battle with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP). CIDP is a chronic, progressive auto immune illness, similar to MS. My body's immune system became hyperactive and it began attacking my nerve's protective myelin sheath. As spring turned into summer,CIDP took my legs, my arms, my feet and my hands, leaving me paralyzed.
It took plenty of faith, work and support from friends, family, and the excellent physical and occupational therapists who brought me to this point.
