Hi Deb,

As Caz said my daughter has had MS since she was 18, she is now 30. If you want to pm me please do. There is very little I don't know about this terrible illness after 12 years research. There are a bunch of us, both sufferers and parents who support each other. There is another member on here who has it too.

Feel free to rant, rave, ask questions about support, research or anything else.

Take care

Sue xx

I dont know anyone special to me that has it but i have worked on a unit years ago where it was a ms unit.Some were in there 20's but i do remember a man in his 40's that was a postman.He told me he was bitten by a dog and he thinks the shock bought out the ms?A really lovely man. Annie
