I was on the old forum for a few months before the change over and really enjoyed the loving and really helpful support leading up to my dx but i got a very vicious negative response 3 weeks after my diagnosis when i was experiencing an extremely down troubling time and when i was trying to get my head around everything so i decided to ditch this place as it really depressed an upset me to the point that i was crying for days on end. This was a really bad point in my MS journey.
I feel a little stronger now and i'm prepared for the negativity and lack of understanding that some well grounded members may have for newbies that are just finding their feet.
I had some really lovely PM friends and i hope to find them again.
I hope that you are all doing well and i would love to chat once more.
