Can you really fight MS and 'win' and can you be a plucky ‘survivor’ not possible surely once it has come into your life.
MS just strolls into your life uninvited and takes it over, it just steals your life.
I was diagnosed in 2006 with Primary Progressive MS and it was more progressive than we, Richie and I could have ever imagined.
The progression of the disease has been so rapid that everything has become outdated almost before it has been implemented.
It is a real shocker and extremely scary and unexplainable, it's hard not being able to adequately describe how it feels having MS.
Friends and family find it very hard to put themselves in our place and are quite often very worried and scared as are we.
Even the most sympathetic/empathetic person can't feel what those of us with MS are feeling.
None of us can feel what another is feeling, so we are all isolated in our own experience which is why it is even more important to make contact and to communicate with each other.
We need to give ourselves and others a break MS is a shocker which worries us all.
