My name is Beth Dagastine. I was diagnosed with MS in 1992 after 3 years of testing and 10 doctors scratching their heads. Looking back and knowing what to look for I have had MS all of my life. Not knowing what MS was, I didn’t have a clue as to what to expect or what might happen. Later, when I found out, I was devastated. Why me? I asked. Well, it was me and now what can I do to fight it and keep control??? ATTITUDE, keep a good one.

After being diagnosed and being forced to retire from the working world I joined my husband in SCUBA diving. My husband, Gary, had been trying to get me to SCUBA dive for around 20 years but I just never had time or the ambition for it. But now that I was retired and the kids are grown, so why not try it. The diving has worked wonders for me both mentally and physically. It boosted my self-esteem for a starter. Then one day I came up from a dive around 100′ deep. To the amazement of everyone around I could walk unassisted. That lasted for several days. Now several years later we have learned that deep diving using air or shallower dives using NITROX, a mixed gas, allow me to throw the cane away and walk like a normal sober person instead of wobbling. Sometimes I’m even able to run.

I have now earned my “Advanced Open Water Certification” as well as a NITROX Certification and several Speciality courses in Scuba Diving.

I have worked hard trying to get a recompression chamber for this area. Not everyone can dive and reap the rewards I have received from it. A recompression chamber could allow a non-diver to get the same effects as the diving offers. The Chamber would also be good for diabetics, CP children, burns, stroke victims and many other ailments.

I’am also very busy doing volunteer work for MS. I was the “Mother of the Year” in 1996 for the Inland Empire and also the NMSS Inland Chapter “Walk Honoree” in April 1998. I became the Multiple Sclerosis Support Group Leader in January of 1997, after helping with it since 1993. We meet the 2nd Monday of each month, except June, July and August, at G. W. Hunter’s 615 N Spokane St.  Post Falls  from 11 AM to 1 PM  Please come and join us as we are one big MS family.

In December 1998 a MS friends husband asked if I could get more publicity out about MS. I already write a monthly MS article for 5 newspapers and thought of a Quilt. So now working on Quilt no. 4 and you can see the first 3 on the Quilt Link. I call these the “MS Awareness Quilts” and have taken them to Phoenix Arizona twice, Chicago Illinois, Montana, Spokane Washington, Colorado Springs Colorado, and San Diego, California.

I tried Betaseron and Avonex and now I’am on Copaxone and doing very well with it. The shot everyday is well worth it and as of January 2014 it is now “3” times a week.

I have 2 grown children, 5 grandchildren ( 3 handsome boys and 2 beautiful girls).

In February 2000 I was contacted by Teva NeuroScience, who is the manufacture of Copaxone, to become a MS Advocate. I have attended MS Seminars and training in Phoenix, AZ (twice), Chicago, Colorado Springs, Colorado, San Diego, California (twice), San Antonio and Dalles,Texas, Fr. Lauderdale and Miami Florida (twice), Santa Monica, California , Denver Colorado , Seattle Washington, and Scotsdale AZ.

In Sept. 2000 my husband, Gary, got me a pool at Prianos in Coeur d’ Alene. It is 12 ft. wide and about 5 1/2 feet deep. I go in it each day and the water is between 62 and 68 degrees. I do exercises and keep motive for 30 mins.  My “Core Temperature” comes down. Those of us who have MS don’t do well in the heat and do better in cooler temperatures.

Remember to “Channel your anger of having MS into something Positive.” “We maybe disabled but we CAN try and do anything”  

  Yesterday is history. Tomorrow a mystery. Today is a gift.
