Hey Jeff, welcome to The Group! =D I joined last fall when I was waiting for my Dx. This group helped pull me back from "the pits of dispaire", wow I really need some dramatic fonts tonight! Lol. Well, I ended up with a lovely Dx or severe CRPS & Fibro so in short, without my fantastic med cocktail I hurt like heck 24/7, ouch!!! But thanks to some good docs and meds I'm out and about and even hosting the Parker/Aurora MeetUp every other Tuesday at the Panera at Arapahoe & Parker Rd. Take care!
Hi Jeff! Welcome to the group. I hope you can make it to a Thursday meetup so that we can meet you. I have MS as well and I know that finding this group has been a lifesaver. I also lead Laughter Yoga sessions the first Sunday of the month (oh wait, that's tomorrow, ha ha ha) Would love to have you join us- don't let the "yoga" scare you, we mostly laugh together and act like lunatics :0). It would be a great introduction!
We have a good number of MSers (my word) in this group, which makes it nice to share concerns and questions, and victories! Personally, I will be beginning a new medicine (Tysabri) in a few weeks and I've breen pretty apprehensive about it but talking with 2 members who use it has lessened my fear a lot. If there is anything you want to ask others who have MS, feel free to let me know and I'll get an e-mail out to them.
Don't get too hot out there today! ;)
My name is Cristen and I will be starting an MS support group next month through the National MS Society. I am newly diagnosed and would like to offer support and open a group to others who can share their stories, treatment experiences and other coping skills with others.
I will post when I create the group and invite you to join.
