Introducing MS self to you

Hello to all MS warriors I've been reading the posts for sometime now and I'm finally going to introduce myself to y'all. I'm 54 was diagnosed immediately with MS in 1991 the doc's thought I herniated a disc in my neck after an MRI then spinal tap bingo MS. 2017 had a real bad relapse after more testing they found not only did I have plaque on cervical spine but now the lesions in the brain I'm now labeled with SPMS. I went about 25 years not really thinking about my MS and now my balance is shot to hell, pain but the fatigue is so hard to manage. I know I'm not alone I have y'all to keep me sane.

Thank you to each and every MS warrior for your knowledge and sharing. I have learned so much from reading your posts. I truly wish all of you the very best.

Welcome to our ms family! It took me a while before I felt comfortable posting but it's easy now. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. I am able to say things here I hesitate to share with family because I know everyone here "gets it"

I understand how you feel. I'very had MS for 20 years and did pretty good. I had a attack that lasted for 2 months. Now I'm left with nerve pain, numbness MS hug that no one enjoys and my legs are weak and screwing up my walking. So I will finish with MS sucks

Sherrea1 You are so very right MS sucks big time!! You never know what will happen next you always hope for the best but it's like a scary movie you don't know what's around the corner probably why I don't enjoy watching scary movies.

Wishing you everything that is good!

Welcome. It’s nice to meet you. I’m sorry you are dealing with MS. It is a challenge, for sure. I don’t like scary movies either, and i try not to think about what might be around the corner. MS or no MS we can never predict what’s down the road or around the corner. Wishing you the best, Linda

Thank you for the welcome does anything help your fatigue? I feel strongly that if we could feel less fatigued we could handle all the other MS crap so much better. As I type this I realize this is just common sense :) Take care of yourself and I would send you energy if I had any.

Walking and swimming seem to help a little. I've also tried vitamins that claim to help with giving you more energy and for a few weeks it seemed to help a little. But after that I'm feeling the same fatigue as before. I've been fighting the z monster since about 4 today.

Yep fatigue hit me real hard this afternoon too. You know it's bad when you have to pee and the thought of getting up and walking to the bathroom seems to be more than you can handle.....but I did get up I just stalled until I couldn't stall any longer :)

Welcome to the family! My motto is..."Everyday is a new adventure!" Keeping positive helps to keep me from being depressed because I can't do the things I want to do because I have MS. That's the key, I have MS it doesn't have me. Glad to have you in the family hope to see more posts from you!

Thank you ☺️ babslover is because I love Barbara Streisand. She has such a remarkable voice. Talented actress. She has a cd called on higher ground that is wonderful that mellows me when I get a little angry 😠
