I'm 24, married 3 years and have a beautful 19 month old little girl. Although I'm newly diagnosed, I strongly believe that you don't give up on your dreams just because something is wrong with you. What kind of life would that be if you gave up on love and your chance for a family? Those are the things that make life worth living! And your partner sounds like a great person to want to support you and marry you, he obviously loves you very much, don't miss out on that. You deserve to live a life full of love and happiness and if your partner is willing to share that with you, please don't turn it down! No one knows what will happen in life, you could get hit buy a bus, get in an accident, get a fatal illness, etc etc, there are still a lot worse things out there and you're not guaranteed anything in life so my motto is to take one day at a time and try your best to be positive and happy. A positive attitude really can make a world of difference, and altough it can be easier said than done, worrying or being pessimistic we know doesn't change anything and can actually make things worse. Also, from what I've been learning, I think that the hope for MS is getting greater and greater, there are medicines out now that may help, studies and research on diet and lifestyle, etc that may help and people out there working very hard for a cure. Keep in mind, many of the statistics you hear (like being in a wheelchair in 10 years) were gathered based on people with MS before there were medications available (or they may have already been suffering from it for years before the medicines came out). I think the future for people living with MS is bright and you have to maintain hope. Educate yourself on MS, try to be healthy and have a positive attitude and you can even better increase your chances on living a wonderful life. Please don't give up hope.
