Hi all,

I am new to MS. Still in shock actually. I thought for sure I only had a pinched nerve.
All the symptoms were there, but I excused them and attributed it to my being a 46y year
old mom of 2 and working full time.

I am feeling down. I am afraid of what might be down the road for me.

Thank you for listening

Welcome Terrihope,
I'm sorry you are now part of all the MS stuff.  I was diagnosed last Nov.  I am still in shock, too!  Are you on a treatment yet?  That is very important to slow down everything.  Hopefully you will have a very productive life with few bumps in it.
Hang in there and feel free to ask questions or just vent! :-)

Thanks.Michelle. I have just started Copaxone. My 5th ninjection. I thought I was doing okay with it, but tonight
I messed up and the liquid went into the air instead of in me. I wonder if I should try again or just skip one night?
I HATE that I have to do this..

Welcome Terri,

Sorry about your recent diagnosis. I was diagnosed about a year ago this month. My wife thinks i'm just in denail but I figure its just the crds i've been delt. I have decided to just keep doing what I have always done untill I cant, then I'll do something else. 

Anyway, good luck and try to stay positive, now that you know the enemy you will know how to fight it.

take care - Pete

Hi Terri,

   I'm sorry you were diagnosed with MS, but it's good you are seeking out others to talk about it with.  We are very happy to have you here!  My hubby was diagnosed about six years ago and also takes Copaxone.  It really seems to be doing a good job slowing down progression and I hope it works equally well with you too!  Hang in there, and as Papa Bear said try to stay positive.  I look forward to getting to know you better, and we'll do what we can to help.

Hey Terri

I'm so sorry about u'r dx as well. I am one of those many here who still don't know and i'm not sure if i'm better off or u...but i think at least knowing is great so u have the upper hand and can get treatment. I'm glad u'r here. U'll find everyone here offers great support...something u'll need....and very good advice. I'm also sorry about u'r injection, but i'd call u'r doc to get his idea on how to handle that in the future. I think i remember someone posting that same kind of accident once or twice here before and it seems they were told to wait til the next shot if they got any med in them...but i don't know otherwise. That's a question u'r doc should answer for u for sure. Welcome to the board and take care. We all care and are glad u'r here...tho as the others have said...sorry for the reason.
