Love, Relationships, Multiple Sclerosis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis

In honor of Valentine's Day, please enjoy the following story about how Rob and I met.

When I met Rob over 6 years ago, I did not ‘have’ MS nor RA.  I was just a regular, seemingly heathy, person who was ready to meet someone.  Although my medical records did have hints of what was to come, I carried no significant diagnoses.

We were set up on a blind date through a local dating service.  Rob’s life and interests were described to me as were mine to him.  When we met and compared notes, we both laughed at how we were described to each other.  In fact, from that description, I wasn’t quite sure that Rob and I would have had enough in common.  But he saving grace was that he had played cello through college, even performing in a regional orchestra.  Now THAT was something interesting to learn about.  It’s funny….he was told that I was a teacher, omitting the part about my career pursuing music.
