I'm new here but not new to MS. I was diagnosed in 1990. Boy! that's been awhile! I'll be 60 in just a few days. I got my birthday present two weeks ago at my neurologist's appointment. MRI unchanged! Hooray!

Hello oklaguy and welcome to the forum! I am pretty sure we may be acquainted already however I wished to welcome you as well. There is a great group of people here whom share an unfortunate commonality, however there is a great deal of love and compassion between us all.

Thoughts and prayers

Welcome to the group. Congrats's on having no changes to your MRI. I assume your symptoms have not changed either.

Welcome, oklaguy! No changes in your MRI is a great way to start off a new year. And you have a birthday coming up? jimeka faithfully sends out birthday wishes to our members on behalf of all of us here at MSAA. She'll be interested in knowing your birthdate (if you're willing to share it). We look forward to getting to know you better. 💕

oklaguy what a birthday 🎁 present. That's good news. I hope and pray that it doesn't get any worse, and you stay stabilised. I also hope that you have a good 60th. When I was 60 my son in law surprised me with a ride on a Harley, but your news tops that. Blessings Jimeka 🦋 🌈

Hello, we share a decade in common I was diagnosed in 1991, but I have more years than you, I'm 69. Back then there were no drugs. They just said good luck, you have MS.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Hope the no new lesions means no progress with disability too. Welcome to the group, I've been here 1 week.
