When my RLS/WED first became a problem for me, my dad, like my mom, was concerned with what I was dealing with. One of the doctors I went to said that I may have something called Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS/WED), but that he didn’t now enough about it to make a diagnosis. Through extensive research on the Internet, my mom found the Restless Leg Syndrome Foundation. My dad selflessly stayed home to take care of my sister and I in order to let my mom go the national meeting in order to learn more about WED/RLS. This ultimately helped my parents find a doctor who could provide the care that I needed at the time.
My dad still cares about whatever endeavor I decide to undertake. Whether it is going to a concert or being my chauffer for the day, my dad does so much for me. I really appreciate all that my dad has done for me. Thanks for being the best dad in the world!
