    Does anyone else on here suffer from MS?

    I was diagnosed at the age of 17, been in the hospital yearly for my Cortisone IV's and have had numerous symptoms (facial paralysis, leg paralysis, optic neuritis, muscle twitches etc).

    I'm looking for someone to talk to as my bf (although supportive) doesn't really anderstand what I'm going through.

    Someone who can maybe help me with workout, diet, relationship advice or just someone who understands what it is like living with this life changing disease.

    ....and a hug from me, too.

    I don't have MS, but I do have Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I can somewhat understand living with a situation that can limit your abilities.

    No one, even bf's, can understand what you really go through or experience. In my case, people can't understand what it is like to live from the age of 8 with pain 24/7. I can relate to what frustration you may feel from those around you.

    All you can do is keep a good view on life and realize that there is almost always someone near that has it worse.

    I hope you find the advice for exercise and diet that you need here.

    Good luck and again... a big tight hug.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the hugs.

    @paulNKS I know what you mean about the constant pain. I have to constantly explain to my bf why I cant continue walking through a mall because my legs hurt too much or why I cant go hiking with him. But I have set goals for myself for next year and will achieve them!

    Give the Edgar Cayce cure a try. Its a lot of work but you don't have much choice. It stopped whatever i had going on but i still have the resultant nerve damage. http://www.webspawner.com/users/multscler2/index.html
