I had only the vaguest idea of what MS is, so I went to the website.
Most people with MS have a normal or near-normal life expectancy.
The majority of people with MS do not become severely disabled.
Well, so there are worse things.

I left her a phone message and sent her an e-mail. Haven't heard back from her, hope she's OK, but she said she needed some alone time so I understand if she doesn't want to talk.
Hoping to hear back from her soon.
