    A new National MS Society-led study says nearly 1 million people are living with MS in the United States. That’s more than twice the previously reported number. Learn more:  #TwiceAsMany #ThisisMS

    To put that in perspective, unless my math is wrong, we are 0.003% of the population. While we may not be unique we are rare, aint we lucky, giggle.

    Sometimes it sucks to have taught a few math classes Maria. I cannot resist the urge of grading papers. :-)

    Your math was correct but the percent sign shifts the decimal point two places. We're about 0.3% of the US population.

    Meowza!  That means there are more people out there that need friends, answers, treatment, the list goes on.  Fellow citizens of Planet MS, we have our work cut out for us.

    I moved to FL last year from MI. It took me until last week to see a neurologist. What happened to 400k with MS in the US. When my daughter was tested for MS she was told that she didn't have it. There were 2k neurological disorders without names and she had one of them. I wonder what she would be told now.
