just been diagnosed with Ms

Hi all, bit of a whirl wind or emotions. Just found out I have MS. I have a wife and two young children and not know what and when things will happen is scaring the crap out of me...

And also this one, written by a young mother of four (including triplets. Yes, triplets.) -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/advice-for-newly-diagnosed/. Please know the members of this community get it and can offer a lot of advice and support as you navigate this new road you never planned on being on. We're here for you!
