Spouse of the hidden illness

Matthew Monette

Unfortunately my story comes with no happy ending. My wife was 28 when she was formally diagnosed with NMO we have 3 beautiful children together. It took us years and many doctors to be able to find us some answers many doctors said they have no idea how to treat her then others kept on telling her she was fine. She finally found a doctor and she was a cowboy doing things for her that I can’t thank her enough for. And with the NMO she also endured many other auto immune diseases. But my wife was a fighter she had 3 girls she fought for everyday. Many of the things we tried worked for a little but it just seemed like it was a never ending battle. I can write a big long novel about everything but I’m trying to keep short. After 7 years this horrible disease took her away. May she Rest In Peace and thank you for reading my story.
