New York

Hi, my name is Connie. I live in upstate New York with my 16-year-old son, wonderful boyfriend, 2 dogs, and a cat. Most of the time, I’m busy at work as the director of several residential facilities supporting people with developmental disabilities. I volunteer with local fire departments as an EMT and Community Educator. When I do have free time, I like to spend it gardening and cooking with the vegetables I grow in my garden. I also enjoy watching my son play sports.

Educate yourself. Advocate for yourself. And above all, stay positive."

Connie Living with Relapsing MS since 1996

Over the past 20 years, I’ve learned a lot about living with relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS). I’ve had emotional highs and lows, but I’ve also come to understand the power of staying positive. It’s all about your attitude. Now that I’ve found ways to more successfully manage RMS, I’m ready for a new challenge. I’m excited to be blogging for Live & Learn MS, a place where I can tell my story, help others with their experiences, and maybe even make them laugh.
