    Hi @Paula_C and a very warm welcome to the community. Good to have you with us.
    You'll find that we have quite a few members with MS together with others with different conditions that have effects in some ways similar. Some of these, I am sure, will be in touch with you soon (weekends tend to be that little quieter).
    You are safe here and among friends, so please don't be shy of asking any questions or telling us anything about yourself that might help us to be of service to you.
    We also have a number of dog-lovers :smile:
    Posters with MS seem to be scattered among the forums/categories here, so I'm going to link in our list of categories. Perhaps you could have a browse and see if there is anything of particular interest.
    Otherwise please bear with us - others will get back to you too.
    Very warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard @JennysDad

    Hello @Paula_C and welcome to the community

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!
