I’m new here. I’m 37 I have 2 amazing teenage girls. I got diagnosed 2 years ago and in the Las 6 months have been really hard. I’m finally amiting to myself that I have MS and working full time raising 2 teens on top of having ms is proving to be difficult on my own. Would love to have people that understand the struggle and worry

Hello @melinda _myers, I was also diagnosed 2 years ago. I work full time but, having just kept head down and powered on through (kind of) it’s been catching up with me recently. Currently having discussions about the possibility of cutting down work. With you all the way on this one, lots of us out there…..

melinda, it is hard and I can only begin to imagine bringing up teenagers, but at least you have them in your life.
There are many on line sites to advise and offer support, here is a good start, we can offer advice and there are those that are like a walking encyclopedia when MS is mentioned. I tend to try and get through life with a smile and determined to make MS live with me, but I know we are all different. I am not sure if you have a GP but that is a good start, although mine, like most, referred to his computer so please persevere, you will get there. is my monthly blog as I find writing my way of coping, my contact details are there so any time your down just call
