Hello everyone. My name is Melissa, and I was finally diagnosed with MS last month after 6 years. My dr's kept telling me it was either depression or anxiety, despite the fact I had optic neuritis and 2 lesions on my brain six years ago. Until April. My right leg started tingling and was numb. Within two days, I was in a wheelchair. I went into the hospital, and after another brain MRI, and Spine MRI, I now have 12 lesions on my brain and one on my spinal cord. I am a single mom who was doing pretty well financially, and now I don't even know how I'm going to pay next month's mortgage.....Does ANYONE know of any resources? With the diagnosis, and now the financial aspect, I'm frightened. Thanks to all who respond, and God Bless.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
