Newly Diagnosed

Newly Diagnosed

In the same way that MS affects everyone differently, news of a diagnosis can bring on a wide range of emotions. You may be feeling overwhelmed at the news, fearful for what it could mean, even relief at finally making sense of your symptoms, or angry that this could be happening to you. It is important to understand that there is no ‘right’ way to feel.

“When I was first diagnosed, I felt very low. I was resigned to having MS. Now I control the disease, not the other way around. I am getting my life back.”

Leticia - living with MS for 11 years.
