Question about the future
Hello All, my name is Wolf. I'm a 48 year old male and I was diagnosed in 2015 as having relapsing remitting MS. When I was diagnosed in 2015 my neurologist stated that I have had MS for many years but could not be anymore specific than that.
What I have learned so far, is that MS affects everyone differently and it may or may not progress, and when it does progress the disease may progress faster or it may progress slower than other people who have MS.
Here is my question to all of you who are reading this:
As individuals with MS get older say 50's, 60's and 70's does this disease affect "most if not all" individuals where they can no longer take care of themselves? Have you experienced this, been told by your neurologist that this will happen, have seen majority of people with MS end up like this????
I'm not looking for a concrete answer to this, I don't even know if there is a concrete answer to this question. I'm just asking for your input and if you would share with me what you know about this disease and what your doctor's have told you.

This past week after noticing what's going with the use of words and people passing judgment, I wrote a little something in a timed writing (5 minutes). In particular, I'm praying for more respect for those that have been through so much more than a lot of us and any impatience or judgment toward beautiful souls who have more experience but may have a few years on a lot of us. I love hearing...
