Jesmcd2 got me thinking about this site/forum/chat room/online support group. If you have ever benefited in any way from this site, I'd love to hear how you were helped or what you like best about it (or what you wish were different). Have you benefited from MSAA via this site or in another way?
I'll gladly go first and say that MSAA offers many top-notch publications. I gleaned a great deal of very helpful information from them, and still go there to search for answers.
All of you folks are and were such a godsend, especially in the first year following my diagnosis. It helped me to know that some of my symptoms were "normal," that others overcame an obstacle and how they did it. I felt very alone immediately after my diagnosis because no one of my acquaintance could understand what I was experiencing, but since found all of you, I have never felt alone.
Getting feedback from those who understand is so important. Most of you can understand how important your comments are in response to a post. So whether you're a "veteran" of MS or a newbie, you are vital to this group because we continue to learn from one another and support one another.
I thank all who participate as often as they can.
