Hello everyone! I'm Fancy 1959. I am new to this site but not new to MS. I am in my 15th to 20th year of fighting this MS monster and over the past year I have slid toward PPM form. Until four years ago I was blessedly ignorant that I even had MS. I was an athletic, non stop Mom of three sons who loved the outdoors, spelunking, rock climbing, rapelling, backpacking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and anything else I could get into. Oh, looking back I had symptoms but I kept making excuses for them that they where a normal part of the aging process. But then MS took my bull by the horns so to speak and knocked me flat on my back. Was I scared, you bet. Was I mad at the world, you bet. But that's okay. Information helped me to fight my fear down to a manageable level. Support from my family, doctors, friends, and this rapidly expanding MS community helped turn my anger away from the world and toward this fire breathing monster called MS! Never give up! Never stop fighting! Never loose faith that the next new therapy developed might be the one that cures your MS!
