I was diagnosed with MS in 2000, on my daughter's 8th Birthday. It's been 7 years. I went thru many years of denial and refused to take meds do to fear of needles! I'm now on my 4th attack in 7 years. I'm just now coming to terms with this illness, and looking for people who understand what I'm going thur. My hubbie trys to understand, but he thinks that I should "just keep a positive additude" and that will help. I know he's right, but I had to quit my job (the best job I've ever had!), I've gained alot of weight, I'm tired all the time, I can't do much with out wearing myself out, my insurance is about to run out, our money is about to run out (this is the week it all comes to a head!), and I'm supposed to "stay positive"! UH.....HOW!?

I'm interested to know how others...
