Hey, Im new here and kind of the minority

Postby truman861 » Fri Nov 25, 2011 11:25 pm

Hey all,
my name is John, I am 33 yo and dx with rrms 6 mo ago,
I jnow this condition is typically associated with women more than men so i feel like a minority but looking to see what this site has to offer. I currently belong to another site - patientslikeme but just wanted to get more resources.
I have been essentially pushed out into pasture and retirement even though Im only 33. used to work as a firefighter paramedic but can no longer do the job and dispatch just isnt an option due to speach issues. (kinf of an important asset to have in dispatch).

Anyway, just wanted to say Hi to everyone and see whats up

John

What's up guys, I'm 33 yr old male who's not yet diagnosed, but have all the symptoms and the mimics have been ruled out. I used to be very fit as well, I'm still doing the best I can to work out almost everyday, but I'm not the same. It's good to know you're not alone.

It looks like we got a little fraternity. We should have a secret sign, as to recognize each other. Let me know if you got any ideas.
