How I was able to find peace and joy in the face of diversity and tribulations. Early in life, I have always had Someone looking after me even when I did not realize it. Later in life, after becoming a true believer, my faith was challenged. Even in the face of this chronic illness called MS, my faith never faltered. I did not revert to asking, "why me?" I know my purpose is to boldly show what Christ has done in my life regardless of any obstacles. Born on Chicago's west side in 1958, I aspired to do better than what was expected. I did the traditional college. I got my Bachelor of Science and Masters degrees. I started my career in Chicago. Working for corporate giants like Merrill Lynch, IBM, and Siemens was what I thought I was supposed to do back then. In 1999 I was blessed with employment at a small, public, non-corporate technology organization. However, in 2001, I experienced a steady decline of my health. Not knowing what to do, I went to my primary physician for help, but the prescribed stress pills did not work. Finally, in 2006, I received a call at a time when most doctors were not working. I was diagnosed with MS.
