Hello everybody. My name is Daniel. I am 23 years old and I live in Denver, Colorado. I was diagnosed with MS in November 2007 after experiencing numbness and tingling in my legs. I am taking Rebif and it seems to be working well so far (although I guess no way of knowing). I look forward to meeting all of you and learning much more about this disease that I still understand very little about.

Hey Daniel,

Welcome to Healingwell. I am very sorry about your recent diagnosis. I am glad to hear that you have started a progression therapy. Good luck with that. There are some here that are on Rebif. Feel free to ask questions, vent, or show support to others here.

This is a great place to find support. We also have a scheduled chat every Monday night. Chat is 4pm pacific, 5pm mountain ( that should be you), 6pm central and 7pm eastern times. There are two blue bars that run across the top of the page. On the second bar from the top, towards the right, you will find the word "chat". Just click on that. Choose the Multiple Sclerosis room and sign in.

Love and prayers,
