Family and Friends


Hi, I joined this group to get some honest feedback from those in relationships with ms or who have it. I met my bf on match 6 months ago. All of his pictures were of him fishing, hiking, on road trips or outside. I was attracted to his outdoorsy and healthy lifestyle. He let me know right away that he was on… Read More

Help! I am losing my husband! *

Hello! I am new here. I am not sure why it took me this long to find this community, but I have. Perhaps because I am desperate to help/save my husband. I'll try to keep this short, simple, and to the point. I have known my husband for 16 years, however, was not a part of his life when he was diagnosed. Since… Read More

Starting a Family *

My husband and I were married this past summer after my MS diagnosis last spring and that was a total blow to our future family plans. We were wanting to start having kids right away and now have to wait. I started treatment in May, we were married in July, and my next MRI is this coming May to see where things… Read More


It was great to see Joe Malone another special person in my life yesterday. Joe was the night time manager when I was still working in the bake shop. Throughout the years we became very close with our warped humor and stories we would share with each other in the early morning hours. That would change in June… Read More

How do you deal with dating*

I would never open conversation with I have MS, but at what point do you tell. My perception is nobody would willingly deal with something they technically don't have to and then if you fall for each other you don't want to be like I'm glad you like me enough to stay and oh yeah I have MS, ***** can and will… Read More

Feeling helpless*

I met my friend Lisa in 2007. She's an american girl living in New Jersey, who was diagnosed with MS  about 16 years ago and I'm a french guy living in France. When I first met her she was walking with a cane, had her own place and was pretty much independent. We have a strong relationship made of love and… Read More


Jon's friend Lisa is in need of a patient advocate where she lives in NJ. Would the society know if there was this type of agency for disabled persons or patients in long term care who need assistance in making sure they get the best care, and are not being abused. I guess the same would apply also for the rest… Read More

Just looking for someone to talk to who… Read More


MS entered our lives when I was in the 2nd grade. I rememeber going into class one day and telling my teacher the details of what I would later on discover was my father's spinal tap.

Marriage being destroyed*

I have been married to my husband (he has MS) for almost 26 years.  His emotional instability (which I believe has a lot do to with MS) and my lack of coping skills are destroying our marriage.  I have always loved him very much. But my heart is growing cold because of the constant emotional warfare. It's very… Read More
