Getting an MRI monday

I decided to get a new MRI. I had this disease for over a decade and a half. Always considered RRMS, but not sure if the most recent MRI will show any enhancement so I have to admit I am a little nervous. Funny I used to be worried I would show active lesion, now I am worried I might not.

The problem with all the MS-pregnancy press

I need to rant! Too many people are reading about damn MS and pregnancy.

So now everyone thinks it goes away completely when you're pregnant and they're giving me a hard time when I'm feeling fatigued or weak.

I took a work-from-home day last week and my boss grilled me for it, claiming I shouldn't need those days now that I'm pregnant. This is my first one since getting pregnant.
