Let me introduce myself...

Postby Muu » Wed Aug 09, 2006 3:31 pm

Hello everyone,
I seem to have done things a bit back to front here. First, the lurking around, dipping in and out of forums, then, when something motivated me, posting a response and now thinking it might be a good idea to say hello.
I'm a North Londoner, diagnosed last year with SPMS. MS had been on the cards for 14 years before that with various investigations but no dx. Looking back on all the pieces of this jigsaw my first episode was 21 years ago when I suffered an episode of optic neuritis aged 20. All in all it has been ok for me, although I went through a very dark spell when I realised that I did have MS after all and then had to summon up the courage to go to my GP to set the ball rolling to obtain an official diagnosis of what I knew I already had.
I stumbled on this site by accident. I think it's vg. Whilst friends and family have been supportive, logging on here, reading the postings makes me feel less isolated. If I have to have MS it's good to be on board.
All the best,
Muu

Welcome! I too am a newbie on the forum. I think this is a great place to learn more about MS and get to know others in our same situation. MS is one of those diseases that people have a hard time understanding.

I now look forward to loggin on and looking at what my peers have to say. MS is not a club you want to join, but it sure is noce to have this as an outlet for us all!

Take care.
