    Hi, sorry to read of your diagnosis. I was wrongly diagnosed with PPMS for 10 years some time ago. I read up and learned a lot about it and joined MSUK...they are a great support group.

    Hi pollyanna thank you for your comment. I dont know when you reached out to my post, was nice to see a response. Have you tried looking up the MS Society? They can be very helpful also have plenty of events going on. I dont know if MSUK is the same organisation. Check it out anyway.
