Smile intro

hi! i adore this site & am sooo grateful to Dave for providing it. Thanks Dave!

I live in NYC, got diagnosed with RRMS about 1.5 years ago. had only one relapse since. & just found out I'm pregnant! (yes, married too.)

I thought I'd post that b/c I found it so hard to find info about pregnacy & disease modifying drugs. so if anyone has any questions...

I was very active before my diagnosis & then for about a year was paralyzed with fear. Used to run, bike, do yoga, play tennis, etc. Slowly getting back into those things I love. What helped me enormously was physical therapy. Helped me differentiate what was MS-related & what was just being out of shape.

Starting activities again improved my mood & I am back to (almost) my old, happy, optimistic self again
