2. Please welcome "Alone Time Pleasures" who was diagnosed with MS in January. Upon looking at her profile, I see that she lives just an hour down the road from me. (waving hi!!) I recommend that you start with this post: It's March!!
3. Please welcome Marc, the "Wheelchair Kamakaze," who was diagnosed with Primary Progressive in 2003. I've read the offerings Marc has provided on an MS forum and he's one smart, educated cookie. Here is a thought he shared in a recent post which I related to, not the limited mobility, but the information and community.
In a way, being afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis has forced me into the technological embrace, as the Internet is a vital link to the outside world when you're dealing with limited mobility. Without the online MS community, dealing with this illness would be infinitely harder, both in terms of getting information on the disease, and getting to know others who are going through similar experiences. Some of my best friends are now people I've never actually met, many of whom I know only by their screennames. Remarkable, really.
Here's The Wheelchair Kamakaze's 2nd video. Enjoy!!
Community - that is the primary reason I am here and I believe that's true for many of you also. So cool that our community continues to grow.
