I am 20 years old and Living my life DURRING an exacerbation

I wanted to post a link to an article I wrote on my blog that includes a video blog I did the other day, I'm 20 years old, I'm still fighting my first exacerbation, and I am still living my life! Don't let MS get you down or keep you down! My worst fear was that I would be stuck in the house all day, everyday, but since I've been diagnosed with MS I've actually ...

Hello, everyone!

I have been away for quite some time, but I see that I am still listed as a moderator for this forum!

I joined this forum years ago, when my son was diagnosed with MS at age 13. He is now 21, just finished up college, and is doing amazingly well.

I don't have as much time on my hands as I would like, but basically I wanted to extend my support and friendship to ...

Am 25 and really want to get married

My boy friend and I had decided to get married when I got my diagnosis ( 3 weeks back). I do want to get married, but if there are married people out there with MS, could you tell me if it is a good idea for the spouse?

I do not want him to end up living a care giver's life and I do want him to have a fun life. We had made plans ...

Telling your Friends?

I have only been diagnosed with MS for about 6 months but I'm only 15 so it feels like much longer. I have told only a select group of friends and my family. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with whether or not I should make the fact that I have MS common knowledge or if I should just keep it to myself..
Would really appreciate replies x

Hello All, I am having a hard time explaining to my friends and family what MS is like. They nod like they understand but you can tell on their faces and how they change the topic quickly.

Hi all!

Hello everybody!

My name is Jen, I'm new here (obviously)... and as most other people here, I have MS. I was diagnosed at 14, and I'm just about to turn 20. How time flies.

I'm just wondering if anybody else would be able to share the symptoms they've had with "juvenile" MS (despite myself not being so young anymore). I've been pretty lucky to be in remission for the past 2 years or so, but ...
