  • 6 Months Ago...

    Hi Friends,

    6 months ago today I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Even as I write these words, I'm filled with different emotions. But the feelings that I have above all else is peace and joy. Peace because I'm a firm believer that the Lord has great plans for me despite my diagnosis. Joy because I have all of you who make everything MUCH easier.

    The day I was diagnosed, the only piece of research I did was to find a group of MSers who exercised. Google led me to all of you, who have been a source of information and clarity, encouragement and tips for the last 6 months of my life.

    I'm blessed to have you in my life, even though I've never met any of you. You're always in my heart. Thank you for having the courage to be a part of this group and to share your experiences. My journey wouldn't be the same without you.

    A diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis is never welcome but it can lead to some wonderful connections. This group of people has helped me deal with some of the disappointments and encouraged me to reach higher.

      This really is such a special group of people....I also feel as if I know many of you through posts and stories..... Have never met anyone, and may never have the opportunity to do so, but I do feel the bond! I belong to an MS support group that meets monthly, and feel as close to all of you as I do them...( really!!) Our focus of Keep Moving and Expect Good Things fits me so well.....
      Be thankful. Dream Big. Never Give Up.

        A wonderful and unique group indeed!

        I've met our award-winning host, Dave, in person. He's as much fun as you would expect!

          I stumbled upon this site soon after my MS diagnosis in March 2009. It has encouraged me on several different occasions too. I haven't spent enough time on it to have it figured out but I am trying to get on here more often. Love seeing everyone determined to fight MS!

            6 months ago, I wouldn't have been on a forum although 18 months ago I worked for a charity for metabolic disease and we provided forums for families. I have found that the sharp learning curve following diagnosis = some of the old world drops away and a new world begins. Personally, even though I have horrid days, everything about the new world is quality. People have gone, work has gone, socialising has gone however, I have found you lot and more beyond. Quality rather than quantity in this new world, much appreciated thank you. x
