hi kim – it’s very confusing period having just been handed the diagnosis so my heart goes out to you. i’m sure you’re surrounded by friends and family who’ll be able to support you but as you’ll see from this message board, you’re far from being alone, if that’s any consolation!

Much love x

Hey kinxbx, so sorry to hear you’ve just been diagnosed. i know it’s incredibly difficult to get your head around, MS is pretty sh!t. i think it’s important not to worry about things too far in the future and as stevedomino rightly says get as much support from your friends and family as poss. things will get better even though it may not seem like it now. there are lots of us out there so please don’t feel like you need to go through this alone x

hi Kim sorry to hear your news it is really quite a shock no matter age you are i know it was for me but some of the best idvice i ever had was that i had to be in cotrol of my MS if not then it would control me so i guess that is the best advice i gould give you. keep the chin up 🙂

Hi Kimxbx, really sorry to hear your news. It’s horrid for you to try to come to terms with the diagnosis whilst also having to cope with your symptoms. Have hope in the fact that there is loads of research being done on treatments for MS now and new medication being introduced all the time. Any questions you’ve got or if you just want to offload what you’re feeling, this website is a great place to be. Take care, x
