    Love your positivity! Aww thank you, that's my fiance, we are getting married in Seltember!

    I have Transverse Myelitis which is a rare neurological condition, my spinal cord became inflamed which led to me losing the ability to sit up, stand up and walk. I have Ataxia, hearing difficulties and central vision loss. I will be here all night if I give you my full medical history lol!
