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


  • thanks Allen! glad you told me about it. Years ago I was a member and I enjoyed spending time reading and visiting with the folks.

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

  • oklaguy , Welcome and Happy Birthday, too!

  • thanks!

  • 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. πŸ’•

  • thanks! look forward to it too, b/d is 9-5.

  • Thanks, I'll add jimeka to this 'tag' so she sees your birthdate! 😊

  • Is that the 5th September?

  • That's how I read it. Right, oklaguy?

  • yep!

  • That's great!

  • thanks!

  • Welcome and congrats on the good news. You came to the right place.


  • thank you!

  • Welcome oklaguy! I was diagnosed in 1999 so not quite as long as you. This group is a good mix of experienced MS'ers and newbies.

  • thanks! sounds good!

  • 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 πŸ¦‹ 🌈

  • 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.

  • thank you! another newbie, huh? guess we'll both be checking it out.

  • Happy Birthday πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸŽŠπŸŽ
