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 was diagnosed with Epilepsy when I was 10. I am currently 20 years old am at a point in my life where I am starting to lose hope on having my seizures controlled because throughout my life I have tried multiple medications but the ones that worked my body used to and then would stop. The longest Ive been free of them was only 5 months. Im trying to find something in my life truly worth living...
