If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Well, it's pretty sad really.....very optimistic and a bit simple. They should have asked this site to input questions.....by the way, I got 9/10 which is embarrassing!

Don't worry about missing one. There are several questions on the site that have wrong answers. One is that MS is caused by the bad weather in Scotland.

There is no positive connection yet between bad weather and getting the disease. The weather in Alaska is far worse than what Scotland has and yet the Eskimos do not have MS.

Another question that is wrong is that MS is not a fatal disease. It is fatal for some of us, so saying it is not a fatal disease is not correct.

There were a couple of other questions tha were a little ambiguous too.

I was feeling particularly perverse when I saw it so I managed to get five out of ten: pretty good show, I thought! I was trying hard to get less, but they had to get something right.
