New for Me and My Loved Ones

Last updated: June 2023

I was diagnosed with MS June 1st 2013.

Since then, I seem to be the only one who is doing my research. I still have a million questions. It seems I get a new symptom once a week. The dizziness, the pain, the itching, the headaches.

All I am told is from my family "suck it up". I wonder if they had MS and knew what I am going through, they would have a different attitude. I'm still trying to deal with this.

Now I am scared that I am getting depressed!!!!!

I don't know what to do.
