11 years waiting for a diagnosis. I knew this day would come

The reason I'm here, for support I guess, I'm kinda' starting from scratch.
My name is Dirk, my username is the Dutch word for "Life".

Just had my 3'rd MRI & this time they found it. 4'th quadrant, 11x3mm demyelinating plaque.

Their vision goes blurry, their optic nerves become inflamed. The damage can last long after the astronauts return to Earth. And scientists haven't been able to explain why.
