    I'm a 5'5" bleach blond office manager, diagnosed with late onset spinocerebella ataxia of unknown origin around 5 years ago. Lots of tests, seen many specialists and am proud to say that my DNA is housed in London where it is tested every  time a new strain of SCA is discovered. To keep my SCA company, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea last year and use a CPAP machine at night, I have depression and am undergoing CBT at the moment. Gosh what a bundle of fun! Always fighting and defending what is seen as an invisible disability, I am a warrior!
