Hello! New person post

Hiya, just onto this site after a meeting with my nurse today and feel like the support on here could be well needed. I was diagnosed November last year and chose treatment today. A little overwhelmed at the moment but onwards and upwards! Anyway, can't wait to make some new friends and get to know people and their stories 🥰

Hi, Welcome to the site. Support is what we are all about. We’ve all been overwhelmed when first diagnosed. Which treatment did you opt for. 100% there will be others on the same treatment as you on here! Jonny

@AbiC

Thanks! I've opted for copaxone, seemed to be the best fit for me 😁 hoping the needle fear will become a thing of the past haha!

@jj5sim

The needle fear definitely disappears for most. You do it without thinking. An MS nurse will show you how best to do it then you’ll laugh about how you were nervous further down the line lol. Good luck

Hi good meet another newly diagnosed, I dyed my hair bright purple after I was diagnosed after having black hair for twenty years, is your hair a recent thing?
