And even with all of my problems I'm still trying to find help for my nephew. I feel so hurt by it all. But I've spoken with others and I'm having my birthday tomorrow. And if… Read More

kinda a odd question

I feel rather strange for even asking, but I have been dealing with something for over a year and I've never told a soul, until now. It has been nagging me and no matter the # of google searches I've done, im still no more close to understanding than i was when i started. This has been a minor annoyance and has… Read More

I'm so fed up.*

All I've done is try and get my life on track. While everyone else has done nothing but talk trash and harass me. Then make sure to not want to help. My sister won't take her own son in instead I had him dumped on me. And since being here all he's been doing is drinking getting into trouble. I've asked her to… Read More

What do you ponder?*

During your days you must think of something, what to wear, what to eat and then what else??? Do you ever think about the millions or billions of miles of outer space or visiting a star? Do you have a favorite topic you always think about?   Read More

Thank You *

Have you noticed the power of the phrase Thank You? For me it seems to conjure up other peoples time. Every time i say thank you to someone I see their clock ticking and the seconds they have given to me. Sometimes I notice what they have done, like I appreciate a good massage and the effect it produces but… Read More

I have a wife and two small kids and we live in Montreal.   While I am in relatively good health, the winters here can be debilitating and force me to take additional pain meds and limits my outside activity.  My wife and I are thinking of relocating to a place… Read More

I have a mom, a nurse no less, who just doesn''t "get" that cognitive impairment is real.  Whether its not being able to focus and cook with noise and other people around or difficulty in dealing with too much stimuli.  It's a "mental block" or being silly.  After having her falsetto-mimic my request for being… Read More

Gaming helps MS in lots of ways. *

Hello All, I am new here, and somewhat newly diagnosed with MS (Summer 2018) I don't know why I didn't think of joining communities sooner, but better late than never right!?  The main message I want to get across is even though I've stopped working due to MS this year (boo) gaming on a social outlet (Such… Read More

How to deal with caregiver issues.*

Ok so my nephew takes care of me and has been doing a good job I guess when possible. But being family it's kinda hard I guess to take care of because it's trying for both. That being said there's the issue of the person not working all the hours or over stepping. Yet the individual will put all the hours. You… Read More

Obsession over my issues? Or frustration*

Ok so I've been dealing with the loss of use of my legs. I've tried ampyra it was working for awhile then slowly just stopped working. Now I'm on the generic brand myelin. But I do force myself when I feel good and I end up in the same boat way worse. Some days are OK then I end up forcing myself to be up too… Read More
