Hi Everyone - This is my first ever post, so here goes!
I’ve just been diagnosed with PPMS, one week after my 69th birthday - wonderful! So, as you may imagine, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. The neurologist thinks that I’ve had it for some time, but couldn’t be specific. So, here I am, going through all the emotions which I know you’ve all been through already.
It’s the unpredictable nature of MS which really gets to me, as I’m sure it does to you too. I feel a bit helpless and lost at the moment, so I’m so glad that I’ve found this forum.
I’m determined though to get ‘sixty seconds worth of distance run’ if I can and for as long as I can - the mind is willing even if the body doesn’t always want to follow suit!
Anyway, thanks for listening, and I really look forward to chatting with you on this forum 'cos I know I have a lot to learn from all of you.
