    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    MS and your emotions
    Nancy04232004 posted:
    To all of you out there in this MS community, whether newly diagnosed or those who have had MS for awhile:

    After seeing your posts covering different physical aspects of the condition, how has having MS affected your emotions regarding difficulties you may have experienced in your employment; relationships to others (marriage, family and friends); recreation (what we do with our spare time); and other areas that MS touched in our lives? Also, last of all, what would be your personal feelings that you have toward having this condition? The reason why I post this is because I have struggled with my emotions off and on over the years toward my having MS. Even though my MS is currently stable; it still affects my life emotionally in all the areas that I mentioned above. So, what about all of you? How have you handled these emotions toward having MS?

    Best regards,
