My name is Courtney, I'm 35 years old living waaaaaaaaaay upstate New York originally from Massachusetts. I was diagnosed with MS about a year after relocating here. There isn't a lot of people that truly understand MS and how it can affect us - physically, mentally, and emotionally. The whole "looking OK" thing almost makes seems our symptoms are in our heads to people who don't understand it, it seems like. I don't really like to talk to family about it because I don't want them to worry. So.... I'm hoping maybe when I'm struggling, I'll be able to come here and chat with someone who understands.
