    i was diagnosed w ms past year in April- nothing made sense to me - I carried on doing my usually day to day things without any medicine- 
        Then started falling over but wasnt part of any dance moves. Entire side of my body going numb - I also peed all over myself without having any clue I had to even go? I put my two weeks in at work - without another job but most of all about to not have insurance - just started tecfidera without doing the spinal tap or another mri of my brain since April of last year - take this Theo a day to get you ready for the next dose - exactly why I didn’t wanna start taking any medicine - it goes on forever - but has to be better than doing the bloood work

    You deserve to get educated more✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️✌️😉
    is it too late to not give your job 2 weeks??????!!! I don’t need to know but from here on out, it  probably would be advantageous to start asking questions to your doctor, your nurse, maybe the MS Society.
    You have to treat yourself like a child, think about a child who needs somebody to speak up for them to care for them to get to the right people to get to the right places.
    You deserve this, don’t ignore this.  It’s not a sign of weakness but just being smart about things. 
    consider  calling the ms society or getting in touch with a person from this website- I think there is somewhere to reach out to.  just for some counseling or somebody to talk to you before you make any more decisions.
    This whole MS side effect thing is temporary but along the way you’re going to need some tools and you deserve to be armed with the right tools to cope. ✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼😊😊😊😊😊😊✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼😊😊😊😊😊❤️

    Welcome to the "land of the free" -- the only advanced country on the planet without national health care. :(

    But regardless of that, I echo Chrissyny's recommendation about needing to learn more about this disease that you/we've come down with. Here are some videos by one MS specialist neurologist in Ohio. But whether it's video or written material knowledge is power -- or at least it helps do away with some of the anxiety of dealing with MS.

    Of course, learning from others is good too -- many people have many different experiences with MS. But at some point, we all need to know the ins and outs of why and what doctors are recommending.

    For support and insurance help, contact the MS society here and the state. At this point the bills are secondary to your health and life.
