Mom*

I’m not sure if this falls under daily life or not.  My mother has MS. 20 years now. In February she had a urinaly infection and the doctor she saw never looked at the result and a week later ended up in the ER. She has since gotten much much worse. She is to the point of needing assisted living and I’m not… Read More

Hello Everyone, my name is Jessica!*

To be honest, I just pray to God that I wish that I didn't have MS. It's just something that I have to deal with on a daily basis. I have to have an aide, my nurse aide is cool. I hate that I've had to fire four aides. Not trying to be depressing but if you want to be my aide, come to work. My back does bother… Read More

Day by Day with MS*

Hello, I was diagnosed on 11/9/17.  hadn't been feeling well for month or now that I think about it more like years.  I thought I was going crazy. My legs were always hurting and they felt heavy.

Before you read this post you have to listen to this song to put yourself into the right frame of mind. (And maybe I… Read More
