  • I don't have it but my dad does and he really can't handle the super hot or super cold very well anymore. He does it, of course, because we live in Michigan, but the air conditioner runs more than it used to to give him a break.

  • A friend of mine has it and lives in cali. She dosnt get as many flares as she used to when she lived in Rino. But then again she hasnt lived in cali long so im not sure how much of a difference it has made yet. I am sorry for those who are close to someone going through this or is going through this themselves.

  • Thanks shelii, it is hard. We have created a group called "moms who care for someone with ms" So if you care for someone or have ms please feel free to visit our group. It is new and you can vent, cry or share information, whatever you need to do. I am in a group called moms with ms and started moms who care for someone with ms. It is nice to get both prospectives and has helped me better cope with and deal with my dh's ms.

  • I don't but my dad does and we also live in Wisconsin. The weather is horrible for my dad. The summer is worse. He is in PT right now, so hopefully that will help him regain some of his strength.
