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
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.

Lots to consider I know but hoping some of you have experience with it an can… read more
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.
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
