Help spread awareness about living with MS during National MS Education and Awareness Month by sharing these tips to help those with MS relieve the signs and symptoms.

I totally agree! I’ve been an athlete and Soldier my entire life but always had that “somethings not right feeling” after joining the military. MS took a toll on me. I decided to fight back after lots of Physical Therapy with Crossfit. I’m so thankful that I did. I’m stronger physically. My Crossfit is adaptive to my disabilities but I have a great support system. Keep fighting and keep moving no matter what to anyone living with MS. After all, we are #StrongerThanMS #StrongerTogether. I would share a before and after picture but I don’t know how. I’m new to this. Stay strong mentally and physically and never give up!

“You inspired me to join the Mayo Clinic Discussion group concerning MS! I hope to share my story and learn from others!”

Hi @anisha1232 and @ricksraleigh
I started a New Discussion about MS in the Brain & Nervous System group:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) – please introduce yourself http://mayocl.in/2eKI4Kj

We have quite a few Connect members talking about MS, but no one place where everyone can introduce themselves. Thank you for inspiring me to get this started. Long over-due! I hope you’ll join me in the new thread: http://mayocl.in/2eKI4Kj

GREAT! My name is Michelle Ricks and I have been a full-time teacher for 8 years , followed by a tutor when my MS was making me extremely tired! I would love to be able to walk without a rollator and tutor again! I am retired on disability!
