Websites

TurnFirst strives to give you the best of the web for MS support and information.  Below you will find links to organizations you can trust.  (Just click on the orange names to go to a site.)


Connect with Others 

You do not have to go through a diagnosis alone.  Touch base with one of these groups to get the support you want right now.

MS Lifelines -- MSLife lines provides 24/7 hotline support (USA).  You can call them any time to ask questions and get help.  So don't be shy.  They're good at this.

My Counterpane -- The users of My Counterpane are people with MS and their friends and family. It's a place you can share your story and update friends and family on your progress. It is a place to garner knowledge, support and hope. By sharing your journey with others, you’ll meet a community who understands that chronic illness is a roller coaster and they will support you every mood of the way.

This MS Life -- This site will help you connect with an "MS mentor". If you are newly diagnosed, a caregiver, family, friend or even a 'seasoned' MSer looking for 1–on–1 connection, they can help. Through their matching process, they are able to connect you with someone who is all to familiar with Multiple Sclerosis.  Their goal is to not only match you with a similar story or diagnosis, but someone that has similar interests and backgrounds as well.  This connection is all about you, so whether it's tons of questions, or just to bend an ear, they're here for you.  

"We're passionate about not letting anyone go through MS alone."
 -- This MS Life


Storytelling:  Share Yours, Hear Others

Kate's Counterpane -- Kate Milliken created this video-documentary site to tell her personal story of being diagnosed, coping with her personal challenges, and fighting for her optimal health.  She's a real inspiration.  She'll make you smile, cry, and most importantly, remind you that you are not alone.
