I was diagnosed in Columbia Presbaterian eight years ago and had the usual discussion with the doctor and his nurse about treatment options . I then left with two info packs and went back to work because the job I was on had to be finished that week.
BTW I had met someone , who has MS while the diagnosis process was ongoing and she was a big help with a lot of the decisions.
Anyhow I hadn't even thought of this in a long while so I just thought I'd share.
