does rrms lead to ppms?

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

does rrms lead to ppms?

Postby Artifishual » Thu Jul 03, 2008 4:38 am

I know this question has been asked before , but being new to the whole ms thing. Do you think that rrms leads to ppms? how many of you started out w/ rrms and then later were told it was ppms? I am only looking for answers as to what to my future holds. I know everyone is different, just looking for the general consensus. Thanks, arti
Robbie did you start out w/ rrms? hope your doing better.

I was rrms and may have moved to spms, not ppms. The later I thought meant that the progression was steady right from the start of the illness, with no breaks.

Hi arti just had two bouts of ON in the beginning and then just a slow progression. It’s funny cause I think if I had lost the use of my legs in a car wreck I would accept the chair and get on with my life, work out the upper body play wheelchair sports ect but now it is getting to my arms to the point that it’s getting hard to move myself around. A power chair is next I guess I’m trying to say that there doesn’t seem to be an end to it and that is so hard. I hope this isn’t taken as whining but if some think it is oh well thx for asking
Had ms for over 19 years now.

Thanks Robbie and Carolew, I have just been having some strange thoughts lately, about the future, no progression as far as I can tell. It just worries me that I am only 35 w/ a wife and 5yr old son. At this moment I am the sole bread winner. My wife has stopped working (she hates Wachovia) she has her BBS in marketing and wants to get her masters. I am all for it but I have worked my ass off for what we have and worry that I may come to a point that I will not be a good provider. Always about money for me. I guess I really need to get my priorities straight and be thankful for the now and let God handle the future. Thanks guys. Shannon

Don't feel guitly,Arti. I have the same worries. 29 with a one year old daughter...

Don't think you were whining at all Robbie. Whining is me complaining about going bald at 26. Okay, I'm lying... I was 23... Sorry you got unlucky, even within the subset of unlucky people that get MS (hope that doesn't come off as condescending).

Shannon, I would encourage your wife to get her Master's degree so that she might be able to support you if needed. In my own case, I was able to teach school for two years,sell real estate for 7 years and then run a small business for another 6 years before my health got so bad than I quit working.

If not for my husband, I would have starved by now after not working for over 20 years. There are many spouses who have come to the plate and are now taking care of all financial responsibilities for the family. It is not possible to guess when or if you might be in a situation similar to many of us on this forum.

You are indeed sexy!

Thanks GWA, she is now considering teaching full time (only having to take a few courses to get teaching cert.) and then going back for masters in counseling. She is super smart, she was accepted into university of Houston law school ,but declined to start a family.
I was not always this sexy it took alot of beer and corn bread to get rid of my 34" waist. I was 207lbs at 6'4" when we got married ,now I will tip the scales at around 280lb. Man she is smart and she can cook good!!!
She was and still is out of my league. The prettiest woman I have ever seen.

Hey dude, either you are getting bigger or that's the smallest redfish I have ever seen :lol: . Just kidding. I hope your brain comes to rest on that. Speculating about the future is something I think we all do. Our boats couldn't be any more similar in that I'm the sole breadwinner and have worked my tail off to get where I'm at as well. I also encourage Greta to get her Masters. My wife is one quarter away (she'd have it sooner, but they don't offer her 230 class in the summer) from her RN and the way things have been going, it may be just in the nick of time. Hey, if you never need it (I hope and pray) she doesn't have to use it, but it will be there if heaven forbid the need arose. I'm always pulling for you man.

A properly raised Texan wouldn't call 911 until AFTER the situation was in control.

Joe Horn must have been raised someplace squeamish.

One thing I know for sure is not to mess with Big Bad Joe Horn.
