Attendance Record for this MS forum!

Hello all,
We have had such an influx of new members recently, which is great.  And then we have a lot of members who seem to have been here from the beginning of this forum.  Of course there are the  rest of us who fill in the middle.

I'm interested in learning how long you have been using MedHelp's MS forum and what you think is the main reason you visit here regularly.

If you remember, it might also be interesting to learn how you found this site among all of them out there on the web.  

Please select one of these choices and then add your comments in a separate post.    Thanks, Lu

I joined the forum I believe back in May of O7!  I started showing MS symptoms that persisited for several months.   Between then and now I felt better and kinda lost track of the forum.  Well now 2 years later my symptoms returned.  Once again I began searching the internet trying to find answers.   I remembered this forum and how helpful and friendly everyone was, but I couldn't remember the name of the forum.  I couldn't find it and I was so upset....  but then I remembered Quix and googled Quixotic and MS forum.... and here I am again!  
  I am very grateful for everyone here and it is a comfort knowing that I am not "alone".
  Thank you to everyone!

Hi everyone,
I too am a newbie and not dx.  I found this site by searching MRI terminology.  I have been searching the web since July 07 and this is the 1st one I've come across that feels good.  I'm still searching for answers from Neuro's and have seen 2 to date.  Had my second MRI last weekend and it came back clean.  I did take some of your advice ladies and ordered my medical records so I can look at them myself - you all have been so educating!!  Ya know I haven't heard back from either Neuro I've seen about my MRI results.  The only way I found out this time was by seeing a Cardiologist by referal of the 1st Neuro I saw.  He is actually the 1st DR that has sat down and shown me the MRI.  I haven't even seen the 1st one from last July.  I'm going to get a 3r and 4th opinion if thats what it takes.  I am feeling good this week just visual issues so I'm taking advantage of it!!  Thank you all for your support It's so great to feel like I'm not going crazy!! I was beginning to think that all of these symptoms were just in my head.  

Take care everyone - hugs and prayers to you all :)

I just joined and originally did a google search for a question I had and found this site! Started reading and have stayed! Sooooo glad I did! This is very useful information no matter what! I'm still Undx but there is a  lot of info on here for many things and this may help me, or my family or someone I love one day!

From the results thus far, it seems that we have 2 kinds of members. A sizeable minority seem to come here briefly, maybe just to get some basic information, and then don't stay around. It appears that if a member is here 6 months there's a good chance that he or she will stay for the long haul. I have no idea whether these trends seem to apply with other MedHelp forums, or MS forums elsewhere. Wish there were some way of finding out.
