Over the years I have lost almost all of my friends because they just don't understand what it is to live with a chronic disease.

My name is Heather and I am 24 years old, and live in the Pacific Northwest. I was diagnosed officially this May. A week ago I was finally able to start on Rebif. This was after my insurance company delayed and finally denied my request for Avonex.
My journey began last year in May, when I suddenly lost vision on my right eye. Not realizing it was neurological I went from optometrist to ophthalmologist and finally to a neurologist where I was told it was a case of optic neuritis. Which is where my MS journey began!
This is not the first time I have been sick however... in 2008, I was diagnosed with an extreme case of ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura). Over the years I have lost almost all of my friends because they just don't understand what it is to live with a chronic disease.
Today I had a break down whilst trying to inject myself and I realized I need to speak with people who live the same thing. So, hello!
