Maritza Martinez

Teacher in Puerto Rico

I'm an English teacher forced into early retirement after I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis. I miss school terribly and can say honestly that I feel sad each August when school begins in Puerto Rico. I've lived with MG for ten years now, and can truly say that it still has the power to creep up on me when I least expect it, but that doesn't mean I don't battle it. It's tough, but I'm tougher.I love to write and read, but what English teacher doesn't.I'm a mom of three wonderful human beings, who almost left my husband and me with an empty-nest, but life got in the way instead and gifted us with a beautiful baby boy almost five years ago.He became the motor of my life and keeps me striving to get healthier with the passing of each day.
