test baby food

I know exactly what you mean about testing the baby food! My temp sensitivity is off (I too have no feeling of the water in the tub). I have the spoons that change colour and they do work. Unfortunately, I can't just use the same time setting on the microwave for each feeding. For some reason our mi...

Update

Gave myself first shot today - ouch! Zowie that stung!!! No bad reaction, other than a bit of a headache and a lump forming right away. Hope I'll be able to sleep tonight.

Birthday news

My official diagnosis was within days of my 33rd birthday - just over a month before my wedding. When I was at the hospital weeks before, getting the CaT Scan to determine why I couldn't write anymore my mom said "I hope it's a stroke". I now know why she said that. Her father had recovered from his...

Thanks

Thanks so much for forwarding it - I've been on a couple of well populated "mommy" sites and asked if there are others with MS and small children, but there aren't.

When I told my neuro I was choosing Copaxone, he said "some women don't like it because of the skin lumps" - I told him I'm not worried about lumps, I've got all kinds of them already (cellulite) :lol:

Thanks - I know I should give the internet a rest, it's not the first time I've gone overboard... I like the eyebrow pencil idea, I should be able to find one in the bottom of a cupboard somewhere! I'm really not afraid of needles, as long as I don't have to watch them go in - so the autoject is goi...

can't stop

I know I should quit looking for examples of bad reactions, but I can't stop - it's too easy to find them on the internet. It sure seems like it is far more common than 1 in 10.

Forum for parents with MS

Please let me know if I've missed it, but I'd like to see a forum for parents who are dealing with raising children while coping with MS symptoms themselves.

Has anyone tried Osteopathy?

I have heard that Osteopathy can be an effective treatment for some symptoms - has anyone had experience with it that?

I have completely freaked myself out

I have the Copaxone in the fridge and will take my first injection whenever the nurse gets to my house to set me up. I have read so much about the "fake heart attack" that I have completely freaked myself out. I am convinced it is going to happen to me sooner or later and I don't know if I'm going t...
