My name is Paula, I was diagnosed with MS in 1989. Multiple Sclerosis is characterized by abnormal functioning of the immune system that causes the immune system to produce antibodies against the body's own tissue or plaques. Thereby creating a Scar, an indication of the damage. The damage can appear in many locations within the central nervous system and/or multiple times throughout the course of the disease. The term Sclerosis, means a pathology or any deviation from a healthy or normal condition which also clearly defines the Multiple Sclerosis condition.
Although, living with the MS condition is hard work, you can thrive not just survive. I have come to realized that living in isolation is not the way to cope with MS. However, by sharing small accomplishments in living life with MS and networking with others affected by the Multiple Sclerosis disease, we can turn those MS Scars into Stars!
A Star is defined as a heavenly body, champion, headliner or a virtuoso.

MS Lone Star Classified wants to be a "Network Hub," where together we are, "Turning Those MS Scars Into Stars"
