Life I am in a wheelchair now. I got Guillain-Barre Syndrome- Miller Fisher while staying in Northern CA. I live in the Houston TX area. Before all of this, I lived in LA and worked as a planner for the LACMTA (public transit)for 10 yrs. Before that I lived in the Washington DC area for about 15 yrs. and worked as manager of statistics for the public transit association and then got a divorce and moved to LA. I have lived in Nairobi Kenya and Monrovia Liberia and New York City. All in all, life has been very interesting. Now, I am struggling to learn how to walk again. Each day is better. Thanks to Dave, my significant other, I have a rather good life in spite of my limited mobility Dave has MS, but is mobile. We really are a pair. Love to hear from old friends. Forgive the typos, my hands do not work very well.
