Tracie Reynolds – Sublimity, OR

I named my hummingbird “Hmmmm”. I am 56 years old and have been diagnosed four years ago with MS. It took a long almost 5 years to get a correct diagnosis with numerous tests, and switching doctors due to insurance changes before I knew I had MS.

I have been somewhat artistic all my life and dabbled in several different mediums. It wasn’t until my hands and arms went numb in 2008 that my daughter suggested I start drawing and painting for therapy. I thoroughly enjoy it and plan to keep on using my hands even though I can’t feel anything most of the time. I recommend anything artistic to anyone especially people who have MS.
