My Story 0

Diagnosed in 1982. But first episode was really in 1977. For 33 years I was able to successfully block any relapses buy adopting a plant based diet and getting lots of aerobic exercise. I was so successful at this that I actually forgot I had MS! Then, in 2010, I had my first experience of problems with Secondary Progressive MS. Since then I have been steadily progressing and getting worse. I can still kind of walk especially if I can hold onto a shopping cart or walker but even that will probably become too difficult in the next year or so.
