My sister and MS

November 23, 2007 at 7:23 pm

Suzanne, when my sister was 12 and I was 10 she was diagnosed with MS. Since she is now 57 we have had many years of seeing how the treatment for MS has changed. At the time, she was considered to be the youngest person in the US to be diagnosed with MS. When Cheryl said it is all about attitude she hit the nail on the head. My sister graduated from high school with her class, went on for a year and 1/2 at college and came back home to eventually hold down a job and live on her own for some time. For some reason our area is a hot spot for MS. Studies have been done, but nothing conclusive. I know many individuals with MS and am amazed at the current methods of treatment and progress.
When I first went in with symptoms, MS was the first thing the Dr.s looked at.
Although my sister is unable to live on her own now, her attitude has carried her a long way. You sound like the type of person who will carry on and fight this. And whatever you do, don’t leave the comfortable, confines of this forum.
Take care, my prayers are with you.
