I was diagnosed with R. R. MS i 1997. I am currently on no meds as they made my quality of life less than 30%. I just found on Monday that my daughter has been diagnosed at age 20. I am lost in helping her with hers becasue mine effects me cognitively and hers effects her physically. How do I advise her on what to do when her eye goes where ever it wants?, or her gate is not what it used to be, or the fact that she is dropping things? I am so lost. I have been a single mother for 20 years and have fought this disease myself. How do I fight it for her? I feel so ripped off and guilty. She was 10 before I was diagnosed. I never dreamed of this. I need help. I feel so lost. How do I tell her things are goiing to be ok if I can not understand what she is going through physically?

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