I just joined 5 minutes ago. Never knew this site existed.
I've had MS for about 22 years that I know of. It came on pretty quickly and the diagnosis didn't take long but convincing new DR's that I had it and getting treated for symptoms was a real challenge the first years. Now that I am no longer doing the DMD'S I no longer depend on a wheelchair or walker like I used to or have exaserbation. Once in a while I may need a few days to lay low a rest because I just don't feel well or I'm very dizzy and off balance but that's the extent of it now. I've even gone back to work and absolutely love it! My job as a Service Tech changes every day and I'm finally using my Degree in Building Construction! At 62 my life is finally starting and I love this feeling!
