I wish I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) within the last 15 years like Neil Cavuto (“Business as (Mostly) Usual,” bit.ly/QzX9f9). There are many treatments options now, and real hope. I was diagnosed 40 years ago, when I was 24 years old, married, and had two children. Information and support were the only things out there. When asked if I could have more children, the doctor said “Two is nice.” No mention of diet or exercise! Thankfully, research has finally found some things that help the symptoms and course of the disease.
It's great to read stories about people with MS, like Neil, who are living so actively. It would also be nice to read stories about people who have had the disease for many, many years—like me—and how they cope.
