Just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.
I am a 35 year old female from Missouri. After having symptoms for a year and having them written off as something else, I was diagnosed with M.S. in September 2012. I am still trying to get a handle on this disease and educate myself as much as possible. Right around the time I was diagnosed, I lost my job and health insurance due to company downsizing and getting another job as proven to be difficult despite my best efforts. I am currently uninsured until I am able to get on my fiance's health insurance once we are married. Because of the health insurance obstacle and having a neurologist who is increasingly unwilling to work with me on that situation, managing this illness has become quite a pain (ha!) lately. I'm trying to enjoy the good days and, with the help of good people around me, hang in there on the bad days.
Since I'm still in the process of learning M.S., I look forward to hearing about others' experiences. And maybe I can be of help or benefit to people on here.
So, hi there!
