Any moms out here with MS? (multiple sclerosis)

I have a 22 month old little girl & I was diagnosed with MS when she was about 8 months old. Now that she is up & active (And I mean extremely ACTIVE!!) It is hard to keep up with her. I am so thankful I have her because for years I didn't think I could have a child & if I had been diagnosed before I got pregnant, i'm not sure we would have continued trying to conceive, due to all the unknowns/uncertainties that go along with this disease.I really just wanted to see if anyone out here might be sharing this boat with me. I was diagnosed a little over a year now & still struggle to completely come to terms with it.

Yes. I was diagnosed in October of 2009. My Mother has had it since she was 16. She is now 61 and has been bedridden for 26 years. So, unfortunately I knew more than I wanted to know about MS before my diagnosis.. But it didn't prepare me to deal with it myself, that's for sure! I've been on Betaseron for 2 years now.

I don't have MS, but I do know someone who does have MS and she is starting a group. I don't know where you live but she lives here in Live Oak, Florida. If you would like to be able to talk with her you can PM me, she has FB. Good luck and I will be keepping you in my prayers and thoughs.

I don't have it but my dad was diagnosed in May 1990. I've watched him struggle since I was 8 years old! Such a horrible disease. I don't think there is enough awareness for it! We had our first local walk in Oct. and raised $30,000 for the MS foundation.

My dh has ms, he was diagnosised 2 years ago when he had an attack that was first thought to be a stroke. He is a sahd now and deals with our very active 4yo ds, one thing he's found that helps is to have ds do things in the same room as himso he can keep track of him easier
