    Fighting The Battle

    Yes I have had MS for 13 yrs and to look at me you would never know. I deal with it and don't think about it. I go about my life like everyone else. I have good days and bad. That's why I like to live life to the fullest and enjoy myself. I can't change it so I just deal with.

    Emotions?

    What emotions do you struggle most with? How do you overcome it? Especially if you've been diagnosed a longer time ago, like me, 6 years ago and more? Does it ever get easier or just worse?
