PPMS stripped away the surface of my life, and left behind a new one not worse or better, but definitely different. I'm not good at very much, but I'm great at surviving. Marrying my wife was the one thing I did extremely well. She's the wonder of my life. And I write.

Advocating for yourself #MultipleSclerosis

How do you advocate for yourself and your health when you feel doctors are dismissive of your symptoms? I have been going round and round with tests and diagnosis for at least 5 years now and my GP and Rheumotologist have both determined my symptoms are highly indicative of MS. My neurologist seems completely oblivious and unconcerned. #struggling

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is Nina_23. I'm here because I have spent the last 5 years experiencing symptoms that are continually attributed to one thing or another by every doctor is see without any clear guidance. Additionally I am in the process of being tested for MS and I am feeling disheartened by all of the last five years.

Can't stop pulling my hair. Got scared when I saw a flashing light. I left a message for my eye doctor but the stress of what could be overflowed into self destruction.

I feel better after talking about it. Just gotta focus on today. Right now. That's all.

If it is an eye thing it could help the neurologist (when I see him) figure out what's going on. Because I have a lot of MS like symptoms. I don't want MS I just want to feel better, no matter what it takes.

No matter the answer I know it will work out. It's just getting the answer...that is the challenge.

Wish me luck.
