It is a little difficult to make an appointment alone with my doctor since she is over an hour away and my parents don't trust me to drive that far alone yet, but I will definitely try to pull her aside though during my next appointment.

I have only had two attacks since November 2009-present (before I began on copaxone) but I still do not know much about MS. I've been told why I have attacks, what MS is, and what is happening to my body when I have attacks but I'm still pretty unsure about long term effects of this disease...or whatever you might refer to it as. I know I should be asking my doctor these questions and that every case might be different, but whenever I see a doctor, it is with my mom and she is having a harder time dealing with it than I am (which might not say much since I feel completely fine and have no problem with it). I haven't had alone time with my doctor and I don't want to have to ask all these questions in front of my mom because she has just recently began to cope with it better.
My question is, what might having MS mean for me 10, 20, maybe 30 years from now? I have no trouble hearing the hard truth but if MS is such a varied case among people than I will try my best to ask my doctor these questions the next time I see her.
