My Story 0 Appreciate this

I probably had MS long before being diagnosed, which occurred after having a seizure in a supermarket, which lead to an MRI, which lead to the doctor finding lesions on my brain. I have had pain, trembling, depression, fatigue...for a long time though. Also, my grandmother recently died. She had MS for most of her life. And my uncle has very progressive MS. I always felt sad for my grandma, and for my uncle. So when I learned of my diagnosis, knowing how this disease affected them, I was devastated. So far, my symptoms are manageable, but getting worse. Fatigue is at the top. I have been treated for depression for about 13 years, so that may have been my first symptom but never was checked. I know they say MS is not genetic, but I have at least 3 family members with MS, some with other autoimmune diseases.
