Welcome to My-MS.org|
The purpose to this site is to help those with or affected by multiple sclerosis (MS)
by providing information in a way that is mostly easy to understand. Most people don't
have the time to study up on human anatomy, neurology, diagnosis just to name a bit.
What we hopefully accomplish is to give you a well rounded look at most everything
that's involved with MS.
MS is a lifelong condition, it's rarely fatal, and most people with MS live about as
long as everyone else. It's not infectious or contagious so it can't be passed on to
other people. There's no cure or stopping MS, it's a disease that will stay "in" you
for the rest of your life.
There are many websites that deal with MS out there ranging from the very basic all the
way to those geared for research which are extremely detailed. We would hope that you
look at as many of those sites as well as ours in hope that you educate yourself as best
as you can. We want you to be able to find the answers to the questions that come to
your mind, or at least be informed enough to know who to ask.
We have attempted to include a good mix of the basics as well as some detailed
information. All of this may be a bit overwhelming for those who have just been
introduced to MS, but after some time looking and reading, things should
begin to come together. Some of the information we have included may be a bit confusing
to some, however, it's not necessary to understand it all. It's important, however,
to understand what's happening to you and what you can do about it.
All of the information contained on this website is for the education of MS and
we have tried not to show any bias in theories, treatments, or conclusions. We
hope this provides a good starting point in understanding this disease called MS.
