A forum dedicated to the younger people living with MS reflecting their unique concerns.

So I'm not 25 anymore but...

I just turned 26 and I was wondering if any young people living with MS have a fear of never getting married? Not because you can't find anyone but what happens if you are on medicade and you get married? The government then counts your spouses income and you will not be eligible anymore.

My Intro..
