So I was diagnosed on 9/25/14. In February of this year, I had a scare with my left eye, which led to an MRI, which found 2 lesions, which sent me to a neuro which led to discussions of other symptoms, which led to an MRi on my neck, which found no lesions but did find degenerative disc disease, which led to blood tests and another mri on my brain, blood tests were negative for ...

Caring for my RRMS fiancee : challenges

Greetings,

My fiancee of 3 years has blocked me out and pushed me away, due to stress from arguing over the course of the past year.

Now that ...
