I can say that I've had a great life, but I've also had challenges. I've always been one who wants to share the great things I find with others. Those who know, paub tias kuv yog tsis tawm mus coj lub tsom teeb rau kuv. In and of myself, Kuv yog ib tug uas tsis yog-descript laus tug txiv neej uas yeej tsis tau mistaken rau ib tug hunk, tsis yog kuv ib tug kev puas loj heev. I am not particularly glib, tsis ua cas kuv muaj lub txiaj ntsim ntawm gab. I am every man. As we all go through life, peb txhua ntsib cov neeg, qhov chaw, thiab cov txheej xwm uas yog tshwj xeeb. Some even change us for the rest of our lives and beyond. In my life, Kuv muaj ob peb tej txheej xwm.
Thawj thiab foremost, I have been a born-again Christian for 30+ xyoo;
I have been married to my wonderful bride, Kim, for 20+ xyoo;
Kuv raug kev txom nyem los ntawm Cauda Equina Syndrome (Ces), but through God's providence, tau zoo tu qab tso kws zoo. I am restricted in some areas, tab sis kuv ua hauj lwm tag nrho lub sij hawm, in the field in which I've spent the prior 15+ xyoo.
Nws yog hais txog rau tom kawg ib no blog yog teem rau. My journey into this relatively unknown condition has been something akin to a corn maze... at night... uas tsis muaj teeb nyem (los yog lwm yam teeb)... nrog ib tug tshiab lub hli. Yeah, ruam tag, bewildering, scary, wandering around with little direction since the medical community knew little about CES at the time I was introduced to it. I've since found that other diseases and conditions are likewise obscure and information is scarce. So I'm going to talk about my journey in hopes that it will help others who, hmoov tsis, ua raws li cov tib txoj kev.
Tej zaum koj kos lub zog thiab kev tshoov siab li zoo li tsis txhob mus rau hauv tej kev cov nyom uas kuv poob. Enjoy!
