“I was diagnosed with MS on June 9, 2012. It changed my life completely. I no longer work, I can’t drive, my vision is horrible and my balance is bad. I was going to a Kessler (Rehabilitation Center) for a clinical trial and they told me about the Y’s Multiple Sclerosis Water Exercise Program. I had heard that water helps MS a lot. I didn’t want to do it at first, but I joined and couldn’t believe how amazing it was. I love the teacher, Ann Marie, she’s so wise about MS and the symptoms. I can be having pain and it’s amazing how the water relieves it. It’s the best, you feel so much better after. You also meet other people with MS; the Y is now like my second home where I come to socialize.”
