this forum can be great for many people. However, for some, just reading other posts, just makes matters very much worse. If you fall in the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't read the posts.
like brain tumors, I have known a few MS people. one is my husband's aunt by marriage. she was dx'd 19 yrs ago. she is doing great. you would never know she had it. there is another man we know now who helps out with our kids marching band. you would never know he has MS. he is strong and works like a horse, along with my husband, for marching band.
besides that, meds nowadays have gotten very good. they are keeping the disease at bay for many people.
