Greeting Cruise. It’s an information overload when diagnosed with PPMS. Everyone else knows what’s best. My advice is stress less, change your diet & drink more water. Get out there in the fresh air & keep it real. Terry


Hu Cruise. From experience, it can take a lonnnnng time to “come to terms” with it. Three years since my diagnosis, I’m still trying to! Read as much as you can. There’s a lot of info out there. Too much to absorb sometimes.

There’s always someone hanging around on here to try to help, explain or just listen. A wealth of experience.

Hi Cruise

Welcome to the club that I suppose none of us would have chosen to join, but we are where we are.

Lots of lovely people here always willing to help and offer advice when they can.

Just getting your diagnosis is a big one to get your head around, so give yourself time to go through different emotions, but acceptance does eventually come. In the meantime be kind to yourself and take one day at a time, any questions please ask, someone will normally have advice.

Hi Cruise,

Welcome to our little forum, you will find some amazing people all ready to help you if they can.

My advise, think of all the things you’d like to do and do them now, be kind to yourself, rest when your body tells you too. You will find it still takes a while to get your head around it but eventually you will!

In the meantime take care of yourself,
