MS and child custody*

I have a very manipulative narcissistic ex husband who does not care about the kids. He disappeared for 2 years. Cut a long story short he is seeing them again now. I have never ever stopped contact and he has nothing on me but I have lots on him such as frequently letting the girls down for contact and me… Read More

Parent/child relationship*

I have read several posts here from people who have a parent with MS and need advice. There is a children's book that I used to read to my son when he was little (he's an adult now) called Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. The mother has a baby and loves him and takes care of him through all the stages. Then… Read More

Anger and Confusion *

I don't even know where to begin, I apologize in advance if this is all over the place or it doesn't make sense. My mom has MS, she was diagnosed in 2001 (I was 3 at the time, now 18). The progression of her MS was pretty slow at first, but when I entered middle school it seemed to pile on her all at once. She… Read More

Work/Home/Life/Caretaker balance? *

Is there such a thing? I feel overwhelmed working outside the home. I feel like there is never enough time in the day to take him to his appointments, run errands, and keep the house in order when he is having bad days. I am the only one who can. His family doesn't understand his sickness and are extremely… Read More

Mr. Fixit*

I am a caregiver for my wife who has MS. I am, and always have been, a "fixer", but I cant fix this, and It kills me.I looked at myself in the mirror last night and came to the realization that since my wife's diagnosis, 1 1/2 years ago, I have been so focused on making her comfortable and trying to see that… Read More

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

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

I feel like the Grinch and I am living in Woohville.   I know everyone wants to spend time with our family, but I just want a low key Christmas. I… Read More
