If you could say something to your newly diagnosed self, what would you say?

  1. Get ready!.. it's unchangeable undeniable unlimited unenviable. Just muddle through. Its LIFE. Thank God IT HAS an end.

    1. I hear you, @stephna311! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with me. - Shelby, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member

  2. I would have to say... Remember that you live in the present - please don't waste your day wondering about how you will be in a five years time. You already know what's wrong with you and it's a relief because now you can fight it. Only the things you can control in life can consume your energy 😀

    1. I love this advice !! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your perspective. - Shelby, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member

  3. I'd say that it's not going to go as you've planned, but it's going to be alright. I'd remind myself that I can do it.

    I'd also emphasize getting the right doctor as soon as I could (https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/my-advice-for-newly-diagnosed/) and to stay on a DMD, no matter how I feel.

    1. I would say, "You are stronger than you ever imagined, and you can get through whatever life throws your way, even if it doesn't feel like it in the moment."
