This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
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.
To introduce myself my name is Kait! I'm 22 years old, live up in North Bay, Ontario and I am currently awaiting a diagnosis. I was diagnosed with optic neuritis back in June (right at the end of my school year of course!) and after two MRI's something has come up. I'm awaiting a neuro appointment but my doctor seems quite sure that I have MS. Some of my favourite things to do is go hiking and canoeing and I have found a new found love for portage trips (back country camping). I work as a teaching assistant in a childcare setting and I have always loved working with kids in the childcare settings as well as outdoors working at various summer camps. Although I'm faced with this whole situation I'm determined to continue on with my favourite hobbies and my chosen career as an Early Childhood Educator.
