My mom is 75 and has been living with PPMS for 25 years

I have watched my Mom decline for 25 years. She is lucky enough to be living at home with a 24 hour caregiver. She has been non weight bearing for more than a decade and has the use of one arm - sort of. She needs a lift to get out of bed and has a Class 4 wheelchair. She has cognitive decline and struggles following instructions that have more than 1 or 2 steps. ...

Relationship advice

This is my first time posting on this forum and would appreciate any input/advice/opinions.

So I have been dating a guy on and off for about 2 years now and he has MS. We initially started off as friends and I knew he had MS before we got romantically involved.

Husband just diagnosed -- what should I expect?

Hi everyone. My husband (43--almost 44) was just diagnosed with RRMS this past Friday, April 28. Right now, he is just having occasional spasms in his feet and underneath the right side of his rib cage (he has the spasms in one foot daily).

New member, new illness

Hi there all,

I somehow stumbled upon this website today, and I am glad I did. It seems that you all have been a great support system for each other. Sometimes even having the best people supporting you doesn't help, because none of them will ever fully understand.

That being said, I was just diagnosed on 01/20/2017 (the day we gained a very "popular" new president, I might add). I am a female, Caucasian, and ...

Mom with MS, advice?

Hey everyone! My name is Tori, I'm 19 years old, and I'm very new to this site. I really have never talked about this, so I'm just going to spill it, and hopefully I can get some advice from people that understand my situation, because I don't quite fully understand it myself. My mom has been suffering from Multiple Sclerosis throughout my entire life, although 'suffering' is not the right word to use. She's been ...

Trouble in relationship with fiancé

My fiancé and I we were having trouble prior to being diagnosed with ms. She says for the past 2 years and I said I thought it was only for the past 2 months. When my ms flared up last time I got very angry at her, this was before the diagnosis. I have only been diagnosed with this less than 1 month. I went back home after I got out of the hospital and ...
