    Hi there, don't be afraid of MS. Just learn all you can about this dis-ease because it's the "not-knowing" that scares you. The doctor that told me I had MS ten years ago had me think that I was going to "die" soon! Just ask your docs (medical and neurologist ALL the questions you can think of until you have a good understanding of MS and also find out what TYPE of MS you have (relapsing-remitting, progressive, etc.) Also, check out the website : NATONALMSSOCIETY.ORG, or Google or Bing the name. Alsi, find a support group in your area! Take care! Irma.
