Never Knew

My name is Lindsay and I was diagnosed in October 2014. Little did I know I had been dealing with MS issues for at least 13 years. What I put off to bad genetics was much more. At least I lived my fairytale for 30 years. I was super successful in my career, have 2 beautiful children, and an awesome, loving husband who has done his research because he knows more about the disease than I do. Lol I must say despite the constant shakiness, the fatigue, and pain… My life is pretty okay. I think I will write on here though. Sometimes I need to vent and I feel like a burden to my family so I’ll vent on here. Have a fantabulous day everyone!

    Hi Lindsay. At times even those with the best support systems from family and friends still feel alone. We’re always here for support and a place to vent if you need. The MS Society provides a MSFriends and Peer-to-Peer system that can be helpful: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Resources-Support/Find-Support/Connect-with-Peers-One-on-One. You can also look into local groups here: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Chapters. Wishing you the best! Warmly, Kelly, MultipleSclerosis.net Community Manager

    Thank you for your kind words. I’m doing my best to network and find people like me that want to talk. Even with a strong support system, I feel kinda alone.
