A big welcome emoticon As Vali said...we don't post an awful lot, but we are always here for support...just a shout out and we are there...
I'm an RN or rather was an RN. At 60 I was officially diagnosed. Had it for years, but docs didn't know...they tend to look at nurses as Drama Queens with the Disease of the Month...
I'm on Copaxone...and it really helped...I don't mind the shots at all...been doing them since my diagnosis and that's about 7 years...Wow! Time goes fast!
Since you served in the military are you covered under the GI bill?
Looking forward to getting to know you too...hopefully being on a disease modifying medication will help stabilize you...

Welcome to the group. We don't always post a lot but I've found a lot of support and good information from this group. Are you on one of the MS medications? I'm sorry that you have a reason to join this group, but I'm glad that you did. I look forward to getting to know you. emoticon emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

I'm new here. I was sent this way by a fellow Nurse I served with in Iraq and Afghanistan. I ended up with MS like her. She felt this site would help me. I'm not one to go to support groups or all that but I think this would be a good place to ask some ?? and get some feedback and maybe help someone as well. She has since become very ill and is not online much anymore. She ended up with a dual diagnosis and it's been pretty tough on her and her loved ones.

I was diagnosed in 2008. They say I have RRMS-Progressive. I seem to have many relapses and as of recently more and more trouble with several things. I'm doing my best to battle this everyday but it's tough. My life changed so drastically but I still try to find the good in my days because there is always something good.

I look forward to being a member here. Thanks for your time and help.
