My Story 1 Appreciate this

My first symptoms were extreme fatigue and double vision in 1999 and I was officially diagnosed with RRMS in 2001 after a series of MRI's and other tests. Began Copaxone immediately but started having negative reactions to the medication in 2012 and switched to Rebif. I am very fortunate to have a mild and stable form of MS with no significant exacerbationss or permanent disability. I try to stay as healthy as possible - clean diet, moderate exercise, low stress and plenty of rest when I need it. I also believe in the healing power of a positive attitude!
