ROMNEY INCONSIDERATE OF ANNS ILLNESS. He did no consider his wife when making the decision to run for president. I have had MS for 30 years and its a unpredictable progressive chronic fatigue disease and a 24-7 family disease and she needs him to be there for her 24-7. If elected president he will have to chose between the country and his wife and that should not even be a question. Neither did Santorum consider his daughter when he decided to run. My family had to make major adjustment in there life as that is the kind of family we are. In order to consider my family, I have decided to give up my independence of having my own apartment and move in with my daughter in order to make it easier for both of us. She also have a 24 year old with Downs Syndrome. Its not like Romney needs the job or the money and no one but him can do the job. Ann will need him even more as her disease progress. More than the country does. As each MS patients symptoms are different and ever changing, because it affect the central nervous system, any type of movement can further aggravate the vertigo. I cannot sit in my recliner because of its movements. Horse back riding could be a nightmare for me and send me into a MS exacerbation. Is one way she is very lucky that she can afford some of the alternative treatments for MS with less side affects. Ann Romney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia We all make hard decisions but the decision to put her first should be an easy decision for Romney. This decision was another dark side of Romney.
