New and wanted to say thanks!

Hi everyone! This is absolutly the best forum out there for people with MS and their families. Thank you so much for all you do with the moderation and all the extremely intelligent MS material/research. I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago.

New to this site

Hi all,

I backed into this site thru Marc's Wheelchair Kamikaze site and am glad I did.

I am now in a power chair, and have ...
