Newly diagnosed? Listen

I was diagnosed in 2006. I am informed about MS but this podcast offers something additional to what others do. No matter where you are in your disease process, listen to this podcast. It offers much physically but even more to the MS soul. It touches where few do but all need. Excellent podcast. Thank you and stay the course.
