The Scary Truth *

The Scary Truth-Does it creep up on you? Something little can trigger it… a wheel chair, someone else's testimony, Social Media, a little stumble that could have been worse. A lot of us are blessed (for the most part)  to be able to live a “normal” life. Well, as normal as we can. I know for myself when I am… Read More

Hello All. DaveDguy here. No, I didn’t create the name; AOL created it for me eons ago when I started using email. A little background. I was diagnosed with RRMS in April 2013 at the age of 54.

Missing life*

I would like to talk to adults (50s) that have suffered big (life) losses due to MS.  Quitting my job has been especially painful.  Walking is but a distant memory...  I'm beyond annoyed.  I am not trying to be rude, but I don't want to hear it's God's plan, everything happens for a reason, etc.  Let's just be… Read More

Isolated headaches....

So, I'm having these headaches, but not really the kind of headache I'm used to.  It isn't the typical throbbing sinus pressure headache, or even stress related type. I get these sharp pains that hit hard and fast, but really isolated in size.  Maybe the size of a quarter or a bit larger.  And hits hard enough… Read More

Handling the Pain*

I've had MS for 7 years now, and I've always had at least a tentative grasp on it; what my limits are, what can trigger some symptoms, and how to best handle them. My most common symptom is leg pain and spasms. I do not know if it is due to the MS directly or a side effect of the medication I am on (Gilenya). I… Read More

pain & depression worse*

I received my 1st 2 infusions of Ocrevus at the end of December. Now...1 month later, it feels like my pain is worse along with my depression. I spent last night thinking of how I could end all this pain. I won't do anything, but it's just too much for me to handle. My doc suggested Lyrica for the pain but at… Read More

Psychic Pain *

Psychic pain is our imagination run amok, it is the stuff we make up to scare ourselves into feeling something because we have suppressed our emotions so deeply into disbelief that we feel nothing. We make up the most frightening stories we even put Stephen King to shame. We create terror so we can feel… Read More
