New members should feel free to introduce themselves here

Hello from Greece

I have been lurking around the site for quite a while, however today i made the "big" decision to register and in a way become an active member of the MS society.

Unfortunately as you can imagine I have been diagnosed with the silly-smart disease 2 years ago when I was 25 years old (what an age to be diagnosed hey), and have been fighting back.

Symptoms include feet numbness bad eyesight (nystagmous, diplopia) and ...

Anyone live in Syracuse?

Hi.

I just found this site today. Very exciting.

I was diagnosed about 6 months ago. It was a huge relief because I thought I was going crazy. I have an explanation for how I've felt for years.

I've stayed away from local support groups because the attitude is very negative. "How bad my life is"...

These forums look interesting and helpful.

Peter
