I was diagnosed just this past week. So far I feel ok as far as symptoms go. I am a 28 year old pharmacist. My job is highly stressful, I’m on my feet constantly and thinking constantly. I’m nervous that one day soon I won’t be able to work since ms is so unpredictable. I also pay $2000 a month in student loans. Any other medical professionals that are functioning at work for a long period of time?

I feel you! I just graduated with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy and have has MS since 2015 (20 years old). I am excited to start working as a PT, but nervous for my career and future with MS. I will also be paying roughly $2,000 in loans as well.
