How did you find us?

Some of us have been here since the beginning of time!

Some of you may have just joined!

How did you find us? ☺️

I remember getting an email from MSAA about Our Community. And decided to see what was up. The rest is history!

Did you get an email, or see it in the Motivator, or even look us up?

Share how you found your way here! We would love to here from you!

Smile! It catches people off guard!☺️🤗 💕

I was being tested for MS, but was pretty sure that would be the diagnosis. I started looking for information and support and MSAA came up right away. What a great find!

I was just checking out different ms sites and came across this one.

At one point I was going between this group an another I asked the same question on both sites. The other site told me we don't post that on our site but the question had been asked several times ( all I was doing was asking a follow up question to the original question), then they wanted me to do their work for them and find the question that was originally posted on their site and I just left them alone after that.

Now that site sends me an email asking me how I'm doing and if I'll come back no thank you.

Jesmcd2 I found our group even before receiving my MS diagnosis. I knew MS was a possibility and was doing computer research. Found it, joined it, loving it. Found out later, I was one of the first group of members. August 16, 2016!

I was (still am) receiving emails from MSAA and I remember seeing something about this forum. I joined, and the rest is history. I never really imagined that it would be this place that I would be visiting daily, finding a lot of useful resources and information on how to cope with 'ms'.

I now know that I am not alone in dealing with 'ms', and

Together, we are Stronger,

Keep Smiling,

Carole :-D

No idea, I go to msAA lunches so I guess maybe at one of them. msAA does assist me with MRI's so perhaps somebody told me there. msA is a very helpful organisation

Yes, MSAA was where I found HealthUnlocked. I am grateful for both organizations and their differing foci.

I was already a member of health unlocked on the restless leg forum. One day I was just searching what else they had to offer and this forum came up, so I joined. Feel as though I have been here since the beginning of time 😂

I have had MS for many years, but only recently learned about MSAA. I got some emails from them and have gone to one of their programs. I then got an email about this online blog and I signed up.

I was googling everything to do with MS. I found MSAA and then this site. It's not so much the answers I've found as the knowledge that I'm not alone in what I'm going through.

It's been awhile melack01 🤗 how are you doing??🤗💕🌠🦈

I'm doing ok. Between depression and fatigue I haven't been into doing much. I also had some major issues with incontinence which luckily resolved itself. Didn't have much luck getting my doctor to refer me to a urologist. I'm just starting to pay attention to the world around me again.

I don’t remember, either! I know for sure that I joined another forum through an ad on Facebook (when I was still on FB) but I don’t know how I found my way here. I’m glad I did, though—good info, good people, good vibes.

I really don't remember how I found the group. I know I was looking for something after a yahoo group I belonged to didn't have many messages after Facebook came on the scene. I think I may have came across the group when doing a search online and this was by far the most friendly and responsive group I have found.

In the beginning, they were informative and busy with emails but ever since FB was started there were hardly ever any posts or lots of spam that would slip through. I was very lucky when I finally found this wonderful group with all the GREAT people!

Actually on my first visit My neuro actually gave me the name of MSAA to check the treatment option that I might be interested in on my first visit. After that while exploring the site I came across this forum and the rest is history. Me being dxed only a few days before I was curious to learn all I could and you ad so many others helped me thru some tough times and made my first few months so much easier to endure.

That I would never be able to do what I could before but life wasn’t over. Just take what came at you day by day and made me feel comfortable doing it.

So a big thanks to all who helped me get they those trying times.

God bless you all.
