I was vry discouraged cuz I knew that something was wrong with me but I just didnt know what it was.... One day my husband suggested that it was MS and I was in denial cuz MS scared me.... I have 2 lesions on my brain post and lateral.... My husband was taking care of me and on May 2009 ... my husband was Dx with liposarcoma and I put my own health on hold to care for him and recently he pass on Jan. 2014 and I lost medical and all his income.... and now I have no money to cover any medical coverage.... I cant get any help from Social Security cuz they dont believe that my condition is severe enuff .... They think cuz i have moments when im in remission that I can work and there is nothing wrong with me .... I have to prove that my MS is severe enuff for help... I cant get any medical cuz I need to prove it but i need medical to prove it... I am starting to think that if i was back in my wheel chair that it would be enuff to prove it to them.... Im scared to be put in my chair again...its the only way to prove .... that MS doesnt go away... some MS comes and goes without any warning....
I need encouraging thoughts.... Please....

Just wanted to tell you that I look forward to your posts. Being someone that lived with (your wife) MS for many years, I always look forward to your input on this forum
I am undiagnosed but truly believe that your input and wealth of knowledge are invaluable.
Thanks for being such a support.

Im actually north of Toronto.....may I ask, did your wife have vision problems? What were her first symptoms? Sorry if this has already been posted somewhere!
The problem isnt with the Dx its with the ppl who arent doctors telling my doctor he is stupid and telling me that my MS is like an infection take antibiotics and it goes away... That MS is something that goes away... That being stuck in a wheel chair is the best place to be in..... I wish ppl without a degree would let the doctor do his job... insteadof interfering...
