Bathtubs

I'm beginning to look into various types of bathtubs to make TWSTRML (The Woman Sent To Run My Life)'s life easier. She has SPMS and getting in and out of the tub are a major ordeal

Fiance with MS

Howdy folks!

I will soon be married! My soon-to-be wife doesn't like to discuss her RRMS. Luckily she is marrying an "expert" ;-) I like keeping up to date on everything. I'll take as much of the burden I possibly can. She's doing fine right now, one slight visual-related relapse in 4 years, after which she started Copaxone. I thought this would be a good place to ...

Explaining ms to children

My daughter is 3 1/2. While I've tried to explain my condition, she doesn't quite understand. The other day, she told me that I needed to learn how to walk like her! I was devastated. I know it is not her fault, but I need to find a way to help her understand. Not to mention, there are handicapped children in her pre-school. thanks.

How do I get my family to understand?

Hi all . . . I was diagnosed a year ago with MS . . . its something I've felt coming for a long time so it was no surprise to me . . .

I am "fortunate" that I am still walking unaided most of the time and my peripheral tests are still in the normal range . . . my problem? I suffer from all of the "invisible" symptoms - extreme fatigue, easily ...

Mum's becoming very demanding - I'm exhausted!

My mother has had MS for as long as I can remember, but her condition only got bad over the last 3 years. She now needs a mental frame to get around the house and basically has a hard time doing anything. My husband and I and our 1 year old son live with her so I can look after the household chores and cooking, but it's really taking it's toll on me. Since my ...
