MS and goofing around with it with friends

Hello guys,
I wanted to know if some of you let your friends joke around with your MS. Well, I let my friends do it at first after I got diagnosed. It helped me to relax about it and not feel so bad about it. For an example, if some of my body part, like the arm or finger was bleeding I would say "Well there goes my MS", innocent stuff like that.
Now the ...

oh boy new old learning curve

i have been haphazardly rehabbing a reconstructed ACL and torn MCL since about this time 2013 and most recently got into the local rock climbing gym. i own all the dino-marked kiddie bouldering problems as well as the self-belay on the alphabet letters, and can rock a solid 5.4 on the top ropes (ie a casual vertical stroll also readily achieved by small children). i have a selection of delightful finger pad rips, each expertly ...

Natural help for bladder issues

I've developed what is for me a mostly-annoying heightened sense of having urine in my bladder. It's like my bladder muscle says "hey guess what, you could pee right now if you wanted to!" even though I don't want to, and don't really need to - but it feels like I could. The frequency is annoying.

Anyway, I happened upon some research that suggested that pumpkin seed oil helps. I've been taking it for about ...

Accommodations at work

Hi, I'm new here, but found this forum years ago and remembered it now.

My DH has MS. He was diagnosed in 2009. He'd worked in the same industry since 2005, this month is actually 10 years.

He moved to a university doing his job as an animal technician 4 years ago. His work was unaware of his condition until recently. Last March he had a major relapse and was out of work for 10 ...

Disabled welfare in your country

Hi Fellow MS'ers

I am not new here nor with MS (Dx 1998 MSSP actually EDSS ~8~)

MS has changed me

I realised this today. Ok so I knew it all along - all life events do this. But I am a shadow of my former self.

I have no shine, no bubbles left. I feel so isolated and I have been on my own for a long time now. I can't see how I will ever get into a relationship when I feel like a wreck. I want the old me back but I fear ...
