It is official! I have a wonderfully supportive husband. He called the homeowners to get permission, and he went out and bought an A/C for the main room in the house so that we could all spend time together. I still cannot do much during the heat of the day, but at least we can spend some quality fa...

That's just it. I cannot even enjoy the house because it is like a sauna. The rest of the family is out in the main area, and I am alone in the bedroom with the AC and my laptop.

Confused about diets

A few months ago, I had done some research on the Paleo Diet and my husband and I started following that diet for a while. I was doing fairly well, but we had a family crisis and we 'fell off the diet wagon', so to speak. It seems as though the Best Bet Diet is very close to the Paleo diet and is ju...

Really sad on vacation

I'm sitting here on vacation crying in the back bedroom (which is air conditioned). Essentially, we rented a house on Cape Cod (which I have wanted to do for years) and we booked it about 6 months ago. I was just diagnosed with MS 2 weeks ago and had to go on a 5 day course of IV Steroids (believe m...

Brain Fog....

While I had mixed emotions hearing all of your stories, it somehow makes me feel better to know that I am not alone as well as confirmation that this IS really a symptom. Essentially, I have ever symptom noted here. Problems with word substitution, grasping for words that you KNOW that you know, tel...

Much of my concern is for my daughter. I...

Brain Fog?

I have recently been officially diagnosed with MS and continued to have an increase in both existing and new symptoms. One possible symptom that I noticed began on Friday is (for lack of a better explanation) 'Brain Fog'. I feel as though I have cotton in my head and I can't make the connections in ...

May take you up on that!

Hi MSGator, I would love to chat, if you have time some evening or weekend. I am still in the 'overwhelmed' phase, and trying to take in as much information as possible. If you don't mind emailing me your contact information and some general times, I can give you a call some time. BTW ...my name is ...

Hi again Jimmylegs - Thank you very much for the link, I will review the information with my husband and see what might work. She is "almost 12", which is a tricky age because she is too old for a baby-like explanation, but too young to really understand. All that she knows is that I seem to say 'no...

Telling kids

Thanks Jimmylegs -- I am faced with a challenge. I have a daughter that is not quite understanding my limitations. Can you recommend a kid-friendly article, or MS presentation that she could relate? Just something that would be a starting point for the conversation.

Newbie

Hi everyone,
I was just 'officially' diagnosed with RRMS yesterday, and am feeling a bit overwhelmed. As much as I tried to prepare, by being informed, it is still so very overwhelming.

Well, my husband just found this site today, so I will be looking around!
