I am new here.. was referred by a friend of mine who is also a member. Gina are you out there? :-)  
I am newly diagnosed (8/06) and currently taking Rebif.  I live in California, am 35 years old, married with 2 children (ages 2 and 5). 
I am having alot of walking difficulties, currently on a cane sometimes.  If I don't need it I put it away though (it's retractable)!  
Well just wanted to introduce myself. Looking forward to connecting with everyone.
Have a wonderful evening, God Bless!!!

Hi Stepahnie,
Welcome to the board! Make sure you come to chat on Mondays. Everyone is soooo nice and funny too. My word your sx's sound just like mine with the walking issue. I am so off balancce too and walk with a cane most of the time. I find exercise helps alot for balance issues. I am also on rebif since January 07. DX'd Dec 06.
Looking forward to talking with you.
