ADA accommodations and work struggles

I am running into ADA accommodations at work now too. I was off for a couple of months and recently off a week for steroid treatment. When I returned to work, I have asked for the accommodation to be able to work remotely just when I have to be out for my disability, others do it for no disability. Well the HR director and company attorney has denied me for no legitimate reason. He didn't want to discuss it and wasn't willing to listen further. he now says that since I am… read more

Kids regressing after Moms' diagnosis

I have two young children (5 and 4 years old). I am their primary caregiver and was diagnosed with MS almost 1 month ago. I've been hospitalized twice for a total of 6 days. Since my diagnosis, both kids have been told that Mommy has a cold in her brain and it lasts longer than when you have a cold in your nose. Both kids are regressing or showing signs of anxiety. The 5 year old is throwing temper tantrums- never done this before and the 4 year old is biting his nails. Has… read more

Hi! I'm not exactly sure where to post this but...

I was originally taking Copaxone. It wasn't a good fit for me, but when I was taking it I only manually injected. I just found my autoject 2 and it has never been used. If anyone wants or needs an extra one, let me know!

I work in Edmonton and live in Spruce Grove. Let me know if you are interested!

Dental implants

Considering a dental implant to replace a molar but had a couple concerns and was wondering if anyone has experience with it. Will the procedure set off your TN (if you have issues with it)? I think they are titanium aka MRI safe but if you have implants do they affect your MRI's? Infection concerns on DMDs (im currently on Tysabri) And lastly did you have issues with bone density considering prior exposure to steroids. Lots to consider I know but hoping some of you have experience with it an can… read more

What is the most messed up mainstream movie you've seen and why?

For me, the film can change, but the one that comes to mind as I ask this is the 80's film "The Hotel New Hampshire."

I remember seeing the trailer for it a while back where it almost looks like a comedy of sorts...but man did it have some very dark themes that my mom certainly didn't see coming when she allowed my older sister and I to watch it.

Definitely, definitely Thelma and Louise (watched it 9 times!) and Pulp Fiction. Why? Excellent scripts, great directors and brilliant acting.

When is a good time to tell someone about your diagnosis. What's the rule for new relationships? Someone who has no idea..

Recently back on the dating scene. My MS is not a secret to anyone who knows me.
When do I tell someone I'm interested in about my MS? Before they get attached? Date #3? After we are in a "relationship"? Don't tell them until they fall madly in love with me? What's the rule here? What are your experiences?
I've always told people right away so that they have time to decide if I'm worth… read more
