“As I was diagnosed so quickly It was hard to cope with. I had just turned 23 and It took just 3 days from having blurred vision and dizziness, an MRI scan to being diagnosed with RRMS.
I didn't know what MS was. After researching online I found sites such as the MS society and the MS trust which provided support and information. Although I still cried literally everyday for weeks it was comforting to know I wasn't alone. I also joined some Facebook groups which I use regularly for advice.
I have learnt that everyone's MS is different and I need to listen to my body, some days are better than others and i can feel very low, but I really try to stay active and positive.
Since being diagnosed I have raised money for the local MS society branch by collections and a charity football match.
I have raised money for the MS trust by running 3 10Ks, alone and with my boyfriend and sister. I would never of thought I could of done that even before I had MS so in some ways being diagnosed has had positives for me.
I also decided to go back to college to study for my degree, which keeps me busy!” -----------------------------------------This is Scarlett. When she was 23 years old, she got her #MS diagnosis.
