Tag Archives: when you get diagnosed with a serious disease you should immediately go to the interwebz
I’m Cade, I’m 18 and a college student in New England, and I was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).
There are a lot of blogs out there about MS, but none that I’ve seen written by teens or for teens. So even though I don’t know a lot about my own disease yet (oy vey), I thought I’d give it a shot. I especially wanted to launch it now, even though I might not be well-prepared enough, because it’s the tail end of MS Awareness Week.
I hope to have it set up so guests can post, and I want to know about other teens experiences with the disease, or adults who had it as teens. Feel free to post thoughts, questions, or whatever. There aren’t many people with MS (400,000 in the US) so I don’t really know how much response this will get but I thought I’d try… If you read this, please pass it on to anyone you know who has MS.
Thanks for reading, xox
