I was diagnosed with RRMS in 1999 when my son was 5 years old and my daughter was 3 years old. I work full time as a RN and I recently obtained my National Health and Wellness Certification (International Consortium Health & Wellness Certification). My hobbies include kayaking, biking, tennis, pickleball and enjoying the beach and outdoors. My biggest challenges are accepting my limitations on certain days especially keeping up athletically. Fatigue is frustrating but exercise is “my go to”. My dreams are to live near the water and have a support system that understands. For anyone newly diagnosed with MS, it can be managed, work to be as healthy as you can mentally and physically. Surround yourself with positive and determined people. It can always be worse. My first step in creating a world without MS is to start a local support group and have it grow and reach as many people as possible to help provide support and encouragement. While on line groups may help, there is no substitute for face to face interactions.
