I chose this quilt because it is colourful and cheerful as life is. It took many hours over several weeks to sew and complete it.
I received my official NMO diagnosis in January 2010.
In early 2007, I had bilateral optic neuritis, I was told it was MS. After steroids, I recovered nicely. After many tests, I received the NMO diagnosis in 2010. I took medication for five years with no worsening for years. As a residual symptom, my right side is a bit weaker.
Acceptance was the hardest or rather, having to adjust my life – slow down and put down all the stress! But it was a good decision in the end!
I sew – it is a hobby, therapy and passion for me… NMO came along and tore my future vision to shreds. I picked up the pieces and fitted them tightly together. The result is more beautiful and stronger than the original… It’s like the patchwork…
