MS Progressive Types: The Human SideWith Progressive MS, there is not a moment free from the thought and feel of MS. Pretty scary? This series of articles started with an explanation of the different types of MS and then continued by expanding on Progressive MS. Some of the information paints a bleak picture, but let me add a personal touch.
Here are stories from people with Progressive MS, including me, meant to enhance the picture of Progressive MS with a focus on the human side. My sincere thanks and appreciation to the contributors: David Madison, Beverley Rothstein, Denise Walbrugh and Michael B. Gerber. Each of these stories shows there can still be positive quality of life through diagnosis, symptoms and daily life with Progressive MS.
