Newbie here.

:) Hello everyone. I am a newbie here, but not new to MS. I was diagnosed more than 13 years ago with RRMS. It's been an interesting journey. :roll: In many ways I allowed myself some denial over the years. Beyond some fatique, heat sensitivity and tingling in my arms and legs I have had minimal symptoms up until recently. I guess I chose not to think about things too much.

Things changed this fall. Now it's kind of like getting a diagnosis all over again. Among other things, I have voluntarily left my job that had become too difficult on my body. So, I'm working with Vocational Rehab. to find work more suitable for me, and I'm spending way too much time sitting at home and thinking about my situation.
I won't bore you with anything more about me. I hope to get to know some folks here, and share more in the future.

Hi Amy,

Welcome to This is MS. You'll find a lot of interesting, funny people here to converse with about all sorts of stuff. I check it every day and find it inspirational for my fight aginst MS. I'm sure you will as well.

Sorry to hear of your recent downturn. Myself, I was diagnosed just over a year ago, and am still fully ambulatory and working. Take good care of yourself and post often. I look forward to reading what you have to say.

RRMS since 01/07.

Hey Amy

Welcome - it is a really crappy disease - I also virtually ignored it for years then got slapped in the face, so I know how you feel!

I would love to hear more from you and look forward to your posts.

Take care
