Has anyone been on disability and tried to return to work?

Hi,
In 2009 I went on disability because I had a serious MS relapse. I am now feeling like I want to try to see if I can ease back into the work force on a part-time basis. I have discussed this with my neurologist & he agrees I should take baby steps. I have reviewed the information regarding the Ticket to Work program through social security; however, I am also interested in the experiences ...

Disability claims

Hello all,

I am a 38 year old special education teacher, and I was dianosed with MS over 3 years ago. I have been working through dizziness, pain, and incredible fatigue since then. My job is very physical, and stressful. I have fallen at work a few times since school began, and I am considering applying for disability. Has anyone had any success in applying through either social security or their pension fund? Thanks for ...

Bladder issues?

Hi all,
I'm a little concerned. I have never had bladder issues (except when I was pregnant of course). But last night, while I was sleeping, I peed the bed. I'm 23, how embarrassing. The really concerning thing is when I realised it and stood up to change, it was still coming out, there was nothing I could do to stop it. Has anyone else had this happen? Is this an MS thing? I have ...

Ideas for extending independent living

Good evening,

I'm writing on behalf of my mother who has primary progressive MS. She's been a trooper and gone from walking with a floppy foot (10 years ago) to now primarily using an electric scooter. She can use her walker to go 10 feet, or so, to get to the toilet, but that's about it. She lives alone and has been falling more and more often. She's 60 years old and would really like ...

Fatigue and cleaning the house... Any tips?

I've been taking stock of what my daily tasks are and how I can best prioritize them so that I don't overdo it so badly anymore. This has come about because I'm committed to doing daily 1 1/2 hr power walks with a friend to keep in shape. It's a great thing to do and I love the leg strength it's allowing me. But it sure wipes me right out for the rest of the ...
