It is hard hearing that diagnosis. I was diagnosed with it in 1998, and then there wasn't the research, information and hope there is now. I try to live life to the fullest and deal with my MS on a daily basis. You will find that MS may be hard, but it can also be a learning experience as well. You become aware of an inner strength, and have opportunities to meet interesting supportive people. I have balance problems, so sometimes I may walk as if I had one too many tequilas..I just laugh..which for me has to be the best medicine. I like you have just joined this site and think it is great. So take care, the future has much to offer and try to laugh, life does go on.
