I finally got scheduled for my MRI's. On the 21st. Course who knows when I'll get results. I'm going to be 64 in May. My doctor is pretty sure I have ms. I've read being diagnosed later in life it goes fast. Is there anyone else rats been diagnosed later in life? If so I would love to hear from you. Love to all. Thanks.

    1. Thank you! I'll check it out.

      1. MS is really difficult to diagnose at our age. I was diagnosed at 68 and am 72 now. Although definitely not fun, I am quite stable, even continuing to work full time, entertain and enjoy my adult children and two granddaughters. Not always easy but determination keeps me positive. Don't worry many of us don't progress rapidly. Best wishes to you ❤️

        1. Thank you so much! I've been so stressed about it.
