I would tell anyone newly diagnosed with MS not to let the "what ifs" of this disease take over. After spending 2 months in the hospital, I was sent home in a rental wheelchair in March, 2006. But, thanks to a great physical therapist, I went back to work in August, 2006 and was able to move back to my apartment about a year later. Although we all share a lot of common ground, MS is different for each of us. Also remember... there was nothing you did to cause this and there was nothing you could have done to prevent it!!!!
