My pain was actually so bad at diagnosis that I could barely walk. I remember seeing people at the grocery store walking normally and feeling jealous. It was all I could think about.

All four kids played very competitive soccer..went to tournaments all over the country....two played in college and three were on the Olympic Development team. Soccer was just a natural part of our life for so long and I was the team 'mom' even when they went off to college and played. Username wasn't hard to come up with: Last name + the term 'soccermom' because I was the consummate soccermom.
