A woman’s tale of redemption and success: ‘The truth is out there’
A woman who used to work in an accounting firm in the Bronx has made a miraculous comeback after being hospitalized for a long time.
The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, has recovered from multiple sclerosis and is in a good place.
Her story is a rare one in the world of the disabled, with many stories of people who were cured and then regained their physical and mental abilities.
The most remarkable thing about this case is that she managed to recover without taking any drugs or alcohol, and her recovery is miraculous, said Dr. Stephen J. Hsu, a neurologist and director of the Neurobiology Institute at Boston Children’s Hospital.
She was discharged from the hospital in September, about a year after her stroke.
Hsu and his colleagues have been following the recovery of a number of patients with MS, including those with cerebral palsy and other neurological conditions.
They have found that some patients have recovered fully after being admitted to hospitals and have returned to their jobs, he said.
Some of those cases, he added, are difficult to confirm because the patients were not in a position to receive treatment.HSu said the woman was treated for MS in 2012 at Massachusetts General Hospital and was discharged in January 2013, five months after her diagnosis.
The hospital has said she is in good health and that she did not receive any medication while in hospital.
Hospital spokeswoman Nicole Brown said she could not comment on the specifics of the case because it was under investigation.
She also said that she could only confirm that the woman is still recovering.
But the woman has been in a wheelchair since she was paralyzed and that it was only through her help that she was able to return to her job as an account manager at a bank.
The New York State Department of Financial Services said that, because of the woman’s history of financial problems, it took the department five years to take action on her claim.
Brown said that since the woman received her discharge in December 2014, the department has worked with her to provide her with the financial support that she needs to return full-time to her normal activities.
In a statement, the Department of Insurance said that in its view, the woman did not meet the criteria for a disability and was ineligible for insurance benefits.
The department is also investigating whether the woman should be eligible for disability benefits because of her history of mental illness.
