My name is Alex, and I have been diagnoses with a bone disease called avascular necrosis a.k.a. osteonecrosis nearly 10 years ago. The ironic part of this disease was that it is the result of medications taken for an alternate mis-diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, given in me in 1994.
10 years ago I did not realize how extensive the bone disease was.-- in terms os impacting my daily life, defining me in so many ways, a gift in some perverse sort of way, a galvinizer. There are so many adjectives I could throw at the end of the thought.
None the less, it is my life, for whatever it is worth. I can say that in many ways I am a very lucky person. I am surrounded by wonderful caring people. I have not been alone a single day since my surgery in another state,
It just seems like the gift that keeps on giving.
