I'm new here

Hi, My name is DJ.

I'm new to the community. I am a caretaker of a family member with progressive MS. I have been a caretaker for over 9 years now and I have seen many of the challenges that some of you have faced or will face in the future. I am here to connect with people who have MS and those who are caregivers to people with MS.

Ms has affected 3 generations of my family - my grandmother, mother and my sister as well as a cousin. It has impacted my life greatly.

Just wanted to say hi and connect with the community.

Thanks

Ddjohnso, you're my hero for being a caretaker! What would we do without the help and support of family and friends?

This site has been a wonderful source of information and encouragement for me. I think you will find some truly lovely people here!

Ddjohnso, Welcome! As caretaker for 9 years you will be able to offer insight to those whose partners are struggling with the DX. You are a real trooper! MS affects an entire family not just the patient.
