Welcome Ivy and Chekoala to the MS Party

"Hey! I’m Ivy. I’m in my mid-30s and live in the Philly area with my two wonderful girls and my fantastic husband. Just about 5 months ago I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and just last week found out I have Multiple Sclerosis (MS). My mind has been overwhelmed with the news and hope that blogging will bring some clarity, allow some place to complain every now and again, and to have a place to track how things are going. Perhaps it will even help me connect with others dealing with similar challenges."

Shake & Spear by Chekoala

"I didn’t realise it but turns out an evil fairy godfather turned up uninvited to my baptism. Annoyed at being uninvited he muttered and cursed that I would grow up to be an MS princess. Luckily, my inner fairy gothmother has been around the block once or twice to come to the rescue."


  1. Hey Lisa, thanks so much for the kind welcome. Indeed, pleased and delighted to discover a wonderful Carnival of MS Bloggers exists - I had no idea...

    cheers muchly

  2. Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for the warm welcome and introduction. Like Chekoala said, I had no idea you all were out there and if you didn't find my blog I'd still be in the dark. I'm thankful that you and others have taken the time to blog. I'm checking out as many of the posts as possible and am definitely learning a lot. Thanks again!
