What i love about MS is that it's like religion, you can believe what ever you want because no one really knows..

progress! ...?

well, i have officially (sort of) made it back to a place i was at mid 2005, before all this crap started happening!

spring 2005 i was working on the requirements for lifeguard certification, just for something to work towards in the pool. never was a particularly strong swimmer.

at that time i succeeded in swimming the 600m in 18 minutes once, but then work and school started eating at my schedule and so much ...

A parent's courage

I am new to this site and have recently discovered that I have ms. My mother who is no longer with us (rest her soul) was diagnosed in 1988. I watched her struggle with the disease for 15 years before it took her life I know they say it wasn't actually the ms that did it was actually an aorta aneurism but the ms was a contributing factor. From what I understand from her nuerologist ...

Walking Into Things

Hi all,

Just a little effort to try and laugh at something that would be easy to get upset about...since the MS, my peripheral vision hasn't been the same.

do you think?

Do you think doctors and neurologists ever read some of the posts on this site? Could they benifit from all the results that people talk about? could they learn something from all your ideas on why and how? Where do all the ideas that they concentrate on come from? Maybe the cure for ms will come from here..

Exercise with NO balance or energy???

How do you go to a gym/run/walk ANYTHING when you can't walk a straight line? I MUST appear to those on the outside to be FOREVER walking in a drunken stupor.

My daughter goes to school a half mile from home and we walk (we're too close for bus service). By the time I get home (my walk is a mile--- there & back), I'm done!!! Forget about asking me to do ANYTHING that requires ...

ranting about a doctor or two

okay i'm really mad. this is not about ms it's about a lady in her 80s. below is the summary of her medical care over the last few years. but it all started with her asking me to look at her bloodwork results the other day. she had her CBC results and her MPV, MCH, MCV, and her RDW were all high. now, the history.

- receiving b12 shots from doctor #1
- doctor #1 ...

Blenophobia--Whoops!

I accidentally hijacked the previous thread with this posting--hit the wrong button. Please forgive me, I intended a new topic:


After looking through the forums without finding the perfect fit, I am putting this new (to me, anyway) vocabulary word here. The subject affects the daily life of so many of us!

From a recent AARP publication came this information:

20 million Americans have blenophobia--or fear of needles--according to a recent study.

Shall we make ...
