A forum for parents with multiple sclerosis, and how to cope with family life when a parent has MS.

To have another child or not? That is the question....

My husband and I have a daughter that is almost 6. I was diagnosed with RRMS officially in August of 2012. We have been trying to have another child but I have to admit, I am not totally into it. I am scared to death. I totally want to have another child but when I think about the late night feedings and the utter exhaustion I already feel I freak out. I don't know if ...

Ever had to wean a baby?

I've decided to do dmds, so I've had to go from his never having had a bottle to full time bottles and formula. The baby is 9 months and enthusiastically eating solids. He is "mildly tolerant" of breast milk in a bottle during the day and not at all at night. I have maybe a dozen bottles pumped and frozen, but I didn't want to ramp up my supply only to quit.

I know there ...

Hello...

Hi all,
I am very happy to see a forum for parents who have MS. I am 22 years old, and I have a daughter, Jayna, who will be 2 in December. She is my main concern in all of this, I fear that her life may not be as full as it could have been had I not had MS. I had her in 2009 and I was diagnosed this past July. My neurologist ...

What are you doing to protect your children from MS?

I am interested in hearing from other parents with MS what things they do to minimise the risk of MS in their children?

- I get my son's Vitamin D3 tested at least once a year to keep his level up and I give him supplements if it drops below normal.

- I let him get a bit of sun exposure during the summer, but given that we are in rainy Ireland that is hit ...

Explaining MS to a 3 year old?

My son is three now, he's very inquisitive and always asking why mammy?

He sees me take my injections each day, vitamins and meds and he hasn't really questioned it much, I just said it's to keep me well. Recently we were out though, I had a good day and decided to take him on the bus. Normally I drive because it's easier for fatigue and balance. We got on the bus and he kept ...

children of parents with ms

I think this is a good article for children who have parent's with MS to read. MS certainly sucks for everyone!

A parent's multiple sclerosis can be a heavy burden on children.

Trying to decide...

Hi! I'm a 31 (almost 32) year-old woman. I was diagnosed with MS in 2008 (although our suspicions are that I've had it since 2003 or so). Anyways, my hubby and I got married in July 2009.

I'm still trying to figure out if I should have a child or not... I feel like the clock's ticking and don't have much more time to think... I have many concerns about having a kid because of ...

Help! Relapse during pregnancy.

I'm 22 weeks pregnant with my first child and I am having an MS relapse. This relapse started about a week ago and I saw my neuro on Thursday. He suggests that I wait a few days and call him next week. If my symptoms don't get better he suggested a course of solumedrol and/or gabapentin. I've been searching the internet for information on relapses during pregnancy and can't find anything. Every website says relapses ...

idea for schools

I had forgotten about this forum too! And I think it's a really important place to put ideas and get support. It's interesting that I feel like only other people who have MS really understand what this is like.

I have significant disability, and so I can identify with disability groups and love the support that I get there, but I don't feel at all like people who have spinal cord injuries -- they have ...
