I'm new, to this forum (just not to MS). It's been years since I've tried to connect with others who live with this, I was newly diagnosed the last time I was involved in groups and... It didn't work out very well for me so I've been very reluctant. But I'm much older now, and hopefully wiser. I don't anticipate anything negative to be found here. Mostly, it would be nice to talk to people who understand - really understand, because they live with it too. I was diagnosed 23 years ago so... I've been around for a minute or three.I'm also hoping to hook up with others who were on Copaxone for longer periods of time, and find out what kind of side effects are common. I have always thought mine were out of the ordinary, but until I talk to others who have been on this therapy it's a little hard to guess. In the end I just hope this is a good place for me to meet people. It's just that simple!
