This is a very difficult question to deal with because it varies from person to person. So let’s start with what the textbooks say, “most MS Patients live a very long and fulfilling life”. Are there exceptions? Of course, there is an exception to every single rule out there so forget about that! Will life get tough? Probably! Will there be suffering? Maybe, maybe not. The disease may hit you hard or it may be in and out of your life. For the most part when it comes to the people I know, they have all lost a little of something and do have restrictions that they have to respect but almost all have them have gained something more to their life than before and the rest are in the process of gaining that same thing as we speak.
