My name is Amy and I was diagnosed in 1999. I had a terrible Neuro at first. I was relieved to find out I had MS because I just knew I had a brain tumor because that is what my grandfather died of. MS didn't scare me because I have a cousin that is older than me and I've always known he had it. My Dr said "You don't understand! You will be in a wheelchair in 5 years & dead in 10"
I put up with him for a year and when he kept telling me I'd get over the Avonex side effects I found another Dr. He was great!
My kids were very young when I was diagnosed so they have always known. They are the most compassionate people you will ever meet. My husband is amazing and so supportive I don't know what I did to deserve him but I thank the Lord for him everyday.
Does listening to music help lower the severity of your stress or MS symptoms?
