Not even a year since dx

I knew for years something was wrong. I would be walking,and all of a sudden I would need to stop. I didn't think it was because I had MS. I would joke about clumsiness with everyone. When my tremors started to get so bad that I couldn't feed myself, I started going to the doctor. I saw a regular pcp and took medication. It didn't help. At all. I was made fun of daily from my last place of employment. I eventually was fired because I could no longer do my job.

I became extremely depressed and impulsively took some pills. I was in a mental facility for 8 days. When I left there I started looking for answers and was eventually referred to a neurologist.
