    Hi Everyone!

    I have been in the background for a while now. I just wanted to say that this site is great. The best thing is that you know that your not alone. I was dx in May of 2012. RRM, will start Copaxone very soon. I believe that I have had MS for 19 years now. That is a long time to be without a dx. Drs kept saying that it was only my nerves.

    What I did was found a new Dr. and was dx in three visits after testing. So I learned to listen to your body, it knows when somthing isn't right.
    I am a 55 year old wife and mother of 2 grown daughters, 2stepdaughters,Grandmother of 9 and a great grandmother of 3. I love to read a good book , crochet and fish. I am really glad that I can talk to people who understand. Thanks for listening

      Hi Gram and welcome! Nerves? Oh yea, I've heard that before. I had obvious symptoms for 10 years and what told I was having a nervous breakdown at one point. Maybe I was because of all the misdiagnoses I had to endure!

      I'm glad you finally found a doctor who could make that dx after 3 visits! Sounds like you have a great family with plenty of love to give around to all those grands and greatgrands- how fun!

      We're glad you're here and come back to visit often. We have a wonderful community of supportive people who do understand!

        Hello and Welcome!

        I just rejoined recently after trying to push through without a diagnoses, but my symptoms would not cooperate.


          Hello and Welcome Gram!
          When I can laugh at my experiences, I own them and they don't own me!
