Welcome to the MS boards. The two letters you got sounded weird, to me, I hope this is not indicative of your care!
MS is livable and is not a life-ender. I would encourage you to make yourself knowledgeable of all things MS. That way you can take the proactive position to assure that you get the best care that you need for you.
You might need a few lifestyle changes to keep your health on track and prevent any "derailments".
Please do come here as often as you feel a need to ask questions and to garner daily support. Each of us is different and your MS might affect you differently, but we are all in the same boat together. It is important to abstain from pity-parties and to know that your walk is not a lonely walk. There are those of us who have blazed trails ahead of you; there are those who are walking right next to you; and there are those who will look ahead and see that you are blazing a trail for them. Wherever you turn, you are not alone!
