Misti, I can't comment on that -- I'm still pretty new at this disease.
I just wanted to wish you the best of luck. Being diagnosed with MS can be devastating; however, there are certainly far worse diseases to be diagnosed with.
On the upside, I have really enjoyed the MS community here at NeuroTalk and have met many of my "cyber-friends" face-to-face at various get-togethers.
Depending on where you live, your local MS society may have various activities for free or cheap: my husband and I been river rafting, watched a minor league baseball game/picnic, attended various lectures and spent a couple of free nights at motels. I mean, you don't get all that with a gout diagnosis (which my husband has)! Lol!
Please let us know how it goes for you and what you find out.
