    Welcome to the community @bexter73 :) It's been great to see you've been finding your way around the community! 

    I can imagine that must be a lot to get your head around. Are you receiving enough support from your medical team to help you manage the MS and FND? 

    What'd be on your 'wish list' for support, if you could access anything you needed?

    @Tori_Scope I’m currently being seen by our community rehabilitation team and I have an MS nurse. They’ve all been great so far 🤞
