Hello ThisIsMS

Hello Folks,
My first post. I've been considering joining a site like this and finally decided to do it. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago. Had many 'episodes' before that where I would have numbness.

New to thisisms

Hi, everybody.
My mom and one of her best friends both have MS. So, for my mom's birthday, my little sister and I are raising money by selling t-shirts at The wcbi stands for We Can Beat It.

My story, like many here doesn't just happen over the past few months, but now I believe over years. I feel like so many seemingly ...

Newly diagnosed and in a whirlwind

Hi everyone, I have just recently been formally diagnosed, even though I was given a probable MS diagnosis 11 years ago. I am a 37 year old female with a 3 year old son. After my pregnancy is when my otherwise annoying but not devastating symptoms became unmanageable and left me feeling like the worst wife and mother imaginable. With no energy, weight gain, and extreme cognitive filling my washing machine with dog food ...
