Hi! I am Jyn.

I found this site last night after searching for troubleshooting tips on my Rebif auto-injector (I posted my issue under the Rebif subject) and I have enjoyed reading the many posts and articles.

I was diagnosed 3 years ago when I was 29 years old. Mostly my vision has been affected: Optic Neuritis, Double Vision, Vertigo. Otherwise, this disease has definitely played havoc with my cognitive abilities. Have you heard of spoonerisms? Well the disease has made me a natural at it. And I must admit I was relieved to know after my diagnosis, that I wasn't getting stupider, but there was a medical reason for the loss of memory and crazy words coming out of my mouth.

I look forward to participating and getting to know other members.

Hi, Jyn - I am new here, too. Do I ever have crazy words come out of me. Sometimes I know it, sometimes I don't. My neuro-psych eval showed I have mild cognitive impairment. As the neuro explained..the test's mild and my mild are two different things. I even see things differently than they are, so I am not allowed to drive at this time. I have faulty thought processing. I don't understand situations.
Anyway, look forward to enjoying this site. Breeze

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

So far I have enjoyed this site and the forum. I feel very lonely with this disease and its nice to have people that understand what I'm going through.
