I have been dealing with MS for a few years now and have generally kept it to myself. I do feel it is important to talk with others - others that actually know what it's like, so here I am. I'm on Avonex, and Cymbalta and Soma for spasms. I lost my job when they found out about the MS, although they denied this of course. My job was excruciatingly demanding, so it's for the best anyway. I'll be visiting this site when I can, and just pick up a little here and there....it is great to read what others have posted and I understand! I have felt so alone. It is time to reach out to others. Thank you ! blush

Hi there!  I completely agree with you.  I have been dealing with MS a few years also (only dx. last year though) and reading the posts here helped me to feel less alone.  Although I haven't posted in awhile I just wanted to let you know that this site and everyone on it is very helpful.  It's just so nice to talk to someone who is going through the same things or at least similar things.  I am also on Avonex, and Neurontin and Flexeril if needed.  Take care of yourself, Kathy

Welcome to the board.  This is a wonderful and supportive place.  You are so welcome here.  I hope you post often and let us get to know you.  We have a live chat on Monday afternoons (6pm central).  I am very glad you found us. 
Kathy! It is great to see you again!!  How are you?

Hi cheshiregrin!! And welcome!

I haven't been on this site for awhile, but it's a great one and I hope it helps you in any way possible. Maybe we'll meet again in the Monday Chat (which I keep on forgetting about rolleyes .

Take care until next time, and I am logging off as I just got back from my daughter's baby shower smurf and it's late and I'm tired!

Catch you later,

Thank you all for your replies! I very much appreciate that you took the time to respond to me. I find it very encouraging. I am still clinging a bit to "hiding" but I will get better as time goes by. If I can participate in the live chats, I will. I've been putting a few hours each evening on a file room project, so I'd need to arrange my schedule a bit. It sounds like a great opportunity though.
