    Welcome. I’ve read other stories where women were diagnosed with MS within 9 months of having a baby. Hormones are thought to influence the development of MS. It’s wonderful to hear you talk about living through bouts of depression, but being able to live for your loved ones, friends, and yourself. Support from others (and from your inner self) is so very important.

    Take care,
