Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
Good to meet you. Your fears are my fears - I often make lists of all the things that I won't (or don't think) I'll be doing with my five year old son that I planned to do (teach him tennis, scuba diving, go camping). And the worse thing is watching all the smoking / beer-bellied dads who turn up to my son's (and their son's) football (soccer in the US) each week. The only thing I've really learned from this disease is that life's a bitch and life is cruel. But on the up side (sometimes) I also have hope for the future. A lot of investment is being made to crack this disease so hopefully we will be able to do the things we planned and our children will be proud of us. I like the message from the US MS Society about their recent investment programme:
