Hi Everyone, looking forward to being part of this lovely community.
Just diagnosed with progressive MS, stenosis and spondylolysis. Single mum to a young boy, hoping to connect with others in a similar boat. Petrified by the thought of my child not having any parents.

    Hi @present123, welcome to our community :) Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It can often be a difficult thing to process, how are you doing? I remember when I was diagnosed with Crohn's at 19 and it took me years to really accept how things were. 

    I understand your fear with your child, but MS has treatments and there's a lot of research going into new treatments.

    My Crohn's for example, there have been new medications coming out this past decade that have successfully put people like myself fully into remission. 
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
