      Just ran across your blog and have to give you so much props. You are an inspiration! I am 20 years old and have had MS for 8 years! It's nice to know there are others out there that get what comes along with MS. Sometimes I feel like no one gets it! God bless you

      Nice to meet you Morgan! Man you were diagnosed early… So sorry…. It's tough. Would you like to join my private MS group on facebook? Lots of other people my age (and younger/older) in there, its really cool to talk with others in the same boat as you!
