klv723 created discussion SSDI & actually living off of it.......HELP
11 months ago
Hey all, I am new here but wanted to say hi and hope everyone had a better holiday then me :) If anyone can help me out here, I am on SSDI which gives me like next to nothing a month and need a place to live, any suggestions? All resources have got me going crazy!!! I hate doing this my MS loves to confuse me and make simple things 10x harder. I dont know how anyone lives on SSDI its crazy, Ive always supported myself until now and HATE being back at my moms at 42 yrs old. We cant supplement the income in any way after being awarded SSDI so I am at a loss and getting really depressed about it. I dont like myself and how all this has changed me and really need some sort of independence. So LOW income and simple resources can anyone help? Thanks Happy NEw YEar

Hi Josh/ua, I know what you mean - there seems to be no signs of life here on this planet! I think it may be that there isn't a moderator to keep discussion flowing, so we're left to our own devices. We all end up waiting for someone to say something!Good for you that you have such a positive attitude. It will help you so much as you deal with MS and manage symptoms. I'm with you; I am always looking at the positive aspect of everything, and I think it helps with healing. And it's also better to be in a good mood for quality of life overall.Anyway, best of luck, and thanks for starting the comments rolling.Take care,Ruth

Hi Jeanene,I joined a month ago and don't see any discussions either. Not sure why nobody is participating, but we may as well jump in.I live in Somerset and was diagnosed and started on Betaseron about 15 years ago. I had the same side effect as you: depression. So I switched meds. Have been on all of what they used to call the A-B-C injectibles (Avonex, Betaseron and Copaxone) and for 3 years was on Tysabri. Currently on Plegridy.I'd also heard that eliminating gluten may help MS and I did try cutting it out a few years back. It didn't seem to make a difference, but I didn't try for that long. Maybe a month. If I'd stayed on, it may have helped, but I'm not sure. Anyway, just thought I'd check in and say thanks for commenting. Wishing you well in your MS journey!Take care, Ruth

I was just diagnosed last week.... oh I know I am in NY now but I was born in Rahway, New Jersey, most of my family is still Jersey, and I will always be a Jersey boy! I moved to NY for my old job with Anheuser-busch. Anyway I was diagnosed last week but I have apparently had this for at least 14 years. I am very new to this and I really do not see depression in my future because I am always looking at the bright side of things.Always making others laugh as well. And I love to cook, besides listening to music that is my personal go to problem solver.so let's begin this journey.

Ok so I see a bunch of local people joined this group pretty recently, but I don't see any conversations.  So I'll start...  I live in Point Pleasant NJ and was diagnosed in 2004.  Make a long story short, I almost lost my mind 4 years in so instead of jumping off a cliff, I went against the grain and did things my way.  I quit the medication (Betaserone) and learned everything I could about nutrition.  Is there anyone else here managing their symptons with nutrition only?  I can't eat gluten without getting symptoms and was hoping someone here had a similiar story that we could compare notes.
