Oh Sweetie, I hope you are mad at me for what I wrote. Im not saying you wish you had MS..of course not. No one would. But there is another way of looking at this. Look at all of us who DO have dx of MS, and are doing so well. I mean, for the most part, the people who communicate on this board are still working, or at least taking care of their homes and children...having children for that matter and even traveling, both for business and pleasure. MS doesnt have to be a bad thing in the grand scheme of things....at least you know you wont die from it! Im really sorry that you are so scared. Its normal though. Absolutely normal. Youd be weird if you DIDNT have fear of the unknown.

As for what Im trying to tell you, I didnt say it very well. Desperate said it so much better in her post. Knowing too much, can be a scary thing. BUT NOT knowing is even scarier...by putting all that info into your brain, your scaring yourself, and that is where my concern for you stems from. Please believe me that I feel your fear and your pain. Youre NOT going through this alone. ok??
we are all here for you..but be careful. Dont overeducate yourself to the point where you scare yourself. Stress is THE WORST thing you can do to yourself at this point..
ok?
Hang in there. And, dont be afraid to post questions or state your fears...weve all had them.

I'm not made at all, I appreciate your comments alot and I am going to stop researching as of now... I think it's a defense mechanism, I've always done it for anything, my friend had fertility issues and I researched like crazy for her and my aunt has pmdd and of course I researched for her too.... I don't know why, it may be the want to be nurse in me... trying to help everybody (including myself).... but I will stop... no more research.... promise!!!
