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 ...

Out of control drug costs

MS drugs are expensive and getting more so every year. However, the problem of out of control drug costs is not limited to just MS drugs. It's a problem that's systemic in US health care. For example, Vertex Pharmaceuticals has developed a new drug for cystic fibrosis which has completed successful clinical trials and is pending FDA approval. Once approved, they expect to sell it for $250,000 to $300,000 / year. Note that this doesn't ...

Insurance being a poop

Hi, how do you guys deal with your insurance being a giant poop monster? :crazy:
I'm "undiagnosed" by my neurologist who says "it's probably MS we just need to wait for another flare up." (I'm three years into it, but only started pursuing answers last year). Since then I have been tested for, well you know the drill, EVERYTHING. My insurance has just decided I'm pathalogical and ...
