A Life Coping With MS After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in April 2009, I decided to write down my thoughts on how life is, living with MS. Essentially it’s about coping with an condition that has no boundaries.
A Life Less Traveled In 2008, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. At 31, I was a new father, a recent MBA graduate and a Director at a Fortune 500 company. MS has altered my path and after an early retirement, I am now navigating life on a road less traveled.
A Life Tenacious How to live you life with moxie in the face of adversity
A Place to Scream This about enjoying life to the full with my lovely partner- I scream my head off here so I can pretend to be coping when I have to. MS has robbed my darling of the use of much of her body but has increased our determination to share our love to the full and get as much fun out this world as we can glean. Sometimes it all gets to much so I need to scream about it. **Last post April 2012 but old posts available**

A Short In the Cord Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. The protective cover around nerves gets worn away, causing a disruption in the electrical impulses. In other words, some nerves have shorted out. This blog is my way of trying to reconnect the frayed wires of my life.
A Stellar Life Living a life with Multiple Sclerosis and all the rest. This blog will include my views on current events, disability issues, entertainment and silliness, politics, health issues, and I am sure to offend some; but the celebration of diversity is my main goal.
Able2Access My name is Declan Groeger and I live in Cork, Ireland with my wife Jean; we were married in 1979. I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) in 1988…I have created this blog in an attempt to highlight places that are accessible to mobility impaired people, accompanied wheelchair users and unaccompanied wheelchair users.

AnonMSBlogger Beginning in 2013, my official, unofficial-sounding, diagnosis was “Possible MS”. As in “Possible Multiple Sclerosis”. As in maybe yes, maybe no. In 2015, after a long diagnostic process, my official, very-official-sounding, diagnosis, was Idiopathic Transverse Myelitis.
Ann Pietrangelo My first book, No More Secs! offers a glimpse into the mindset of a person diagnosed with a chronic medical condition. Other people with multiple sclerosis (MS) tell me that it mirrors their own experiences. Some used my book to explain MS to their friends and family. Feedback like this, “I laughed, I cried, I connected to you in a way I’ve connected with no one else. It was so nice to know I’m not alone,” gives me an indescribable high.

Ashley’s Life With MS Being diagnosed with MS is a real eye opener to say the least. I was relieved to have answers though… to know I wasn’t crazy, for the most part. They say MS is only for those who are strong, and I feel that getting diagnosed with MS is just a way to test my strength.
Bag of Eels I’m in my late 30s and I live in London with my family. I am passionate about an eclectic range of music, love to cook and eat, am an amateur philosopher, and happiest with a glass of wine in my hand and laughter in my ears. Oh, and I have multiple sclerosis; something that drives my desire to eat well and stay positive, but does not define me!
Barefoot Heathen Three winters ago I had an infection and got pretty sick and was treated with heavy antibiotics and I quickly healed.

Bethy Bright and Dark Or maybe it wasn’t anything at all and I was just getting old, lazy and tired and that’s just how it happens! I often feel all of those things (old, lazy and tired) so I kept coming back to this one. It came closest to making actual sense.

Oh and must not forget the final ingredient.. do all this after being awake for 40 hours!

Drawing the Line MS I was hoping this could be a place where patients could tell their story, maybe a place to laugh or scream.

Gimp On a Stick Since becoming disabled I always watch travel shows and read travel sites with a different set of eyes. I see things and wonder, can that be done in a wheelchair? Or a scooter? What about walking with a cane? So what I want to do is to travel to America’s great cities and figure out the ins and outs from the viewpoint of a person with a disability.

Halt Stop Forget Relax I’ve had MS for 34 years; the numbers keep going up as well they should, I guess. It is what it is, and it’s more than it used to be.

Lady Disability “it is better to look good than to feel good.” This, of course, is what Billy Crystal used to say on Saturday Night Live when he was doing an impression of Latino actor, Fernando Lamas.

Life In Spite of MS A View of MS From Two Perspectives
Lisa A. Baeringer We’ve all heard the phrase, “The Long Arm of the Law”, right? Well, I thought it would be quite fitting to use this coined phrase when describing Multiple Sclerosis.
Lisa Vs MS In July 2012 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, something that I not only never imagined having but that I didn’t know much about. This is my story about how MS changed and will continue to change my outlook on life, my goals and my priorities.
Living Day to Day with Multiple Sclerosis Living with Multiple Sclerosis is a daily battle. MS is the invisible disease or at least for most people. We fight many emotional and physical symptoms all the time. We need as much support as we can get. However due to the invisible symptoms we tend to not get a lot of support and that brings on more emotional stress which in return brings on more MS symptoms. A Vicious cycle.
Living In a Limited World I started writing this blog in 2011 on another site that is now closing. So here I am complete with the past and heading into a future I am happy to share with you. I suspect like everyone else when they start to blog believe that it would just be a few lines every now and then, the truth has turned out to be something else completely. I am now in my 50’s, but I was just 21 when my story really began, although it took nearly another 20 years for the doctors to work it out.

Losing My Brain Six months after my 40th birthday, I was in the hospital, I have asthma which nets me an average of 1-2 visits to the ER every year, so it wasn’t all that shocking. This time the trip was life-changing, by the time I was released (3 days later) I had been through a series of tests which resulted in a diagnosis of Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. Mind = blown.

Now the left side of my body was growing weak and limp; walking was becoming more and more difficult as my foot began to drag across the floor. I could not lift my toes! I lost my sense of taste and my vision was starting to blur! “What is happening to me? Am I dying or something?”

MS Another Way I wanted to make it easier for people who have busy lives/a preference for the easy option of modern medicine to get informed about the alternatives available that really work to stop the downward spiral of MS in its tracks.
MS Athlete I am now living with, rather than in fear of, my MS. I believe that exercising, which places a certain type of stress on my body, is how I will survive my disease. Although I know my chosen path is not for everyone with MS, I do hope to learn how others have used fitness and nutrition to battle their disease.

MS Nubutterflies I believe things in life happen for a reason. It doesn’t always seem fair and we may not understand why at the time but I truly believe there is a reason. This is what carries me through life. When things are difficult I look for the answers why? NOT WHY ME? Rather what is it I am intended to learn from this? Was it to make me a stronger person? Was it to give me understanding to help others? And what should I and can I do to reach out to others? The answer is yes to all of the above

MS…You Have Got To Joking! I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 19th June 2015, a date I will never forget. I also drank a lot of vodka that night, but that’s another storey. Really you could say I had my first MS attack 4 years before that. Optic Neuritis was my first symptom, August 2011, but I was not diagnosed as I did not meet the McDonalds criteria. From then on everything changed, the body I knew started behaving badly and I knew something was wrong.

Multiple Sclerosis and Beyond Looking back on all of this now I don’t know if I was blessed in not knowing that eventually I would be diagnosed with MS or not. You see this was back in the late eighties or perhaps around nineteen ninety when this all occurred and there wasn’t really a whole lot they could have done for me even if they had the proper diagnosis. And sometimes I even wonder if perhaps my Doctor may have had an idea of what it was but decided against telling me, but I guess I’ll never know?

Multiple Sclerosis, Motherhood and Other Traumatic Experiences Welcome! My name is Meagan Freeman, and I am a mother of 6, family nurse practitioner, and MS patient from Northern California. This blog is a place to exchange ideas, feelings, and experiences regarding life with multiple sclerosis. I was diagnosed in 2009 with RRMS, and I find that sharing my experiences is therapeutic, both for myself and for readers. My goal is to ensure that no MS patient ever feels lost and alone with this illness, and to create a virtual support system.
Multiple Struggles I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis in 2008. It has been an experience of ups and downs, disappointments and individual triumphs but I am grateful for every day. Iman is my miracle and I was blessed with her in January 2015. This is a blog about our journey one tiny step at a time
Mummy2boys This blog started as a “therapy”. A way to vent about all the shitty things that have been going on recently. But as I come through separation and soon to be divorced my outlook is getting better. Then more recently I have been diagnosed with MS and plan to blog about the changes in my diet to help with symptoms and future relapses.

My Mommy Has MS For Parents With Multiple Sclerosis
My_MS_Blog I began writing it when I was at a very low point and realised I needed to do something to help dig me out of the deep hole I was creating around myself. MS, especially when newly diagnosed, can be a confusing, scary and uncertain place. I thought it would be a good idea to write about my “journey” so that others in a similar situation can see it from another perspective.
My MS Journal So, Who Am I? You may be asking yourself that very question. Here is a bit about me……I am 29 years old, single mom to Nathan, who is 11. I was diagnosed with MS on Friday the 13th, that should have been a clue.

No Empire No More …my experience in the Fingolimod trial. All I can say to defend my gross negligence of that task is that I’ve been too busy living normally to post much about MS. So normal has my physical being become that I often forget I’ve got a debilitating disease! **Last post January 2012 but old posts available**
Not Quite Right I should say that having MS is no walk in the park (often literally) when I was first diagnosed I was shit scared, though I decided to be an informed MSer rather than one in denial, I like to keep up to date with the latest medical and treatment news, I get my faith and hope from medical science rather than silly platitudes or praying to some deity!

Republic of Emma I want to ensure that any other young person diagnosed and living with multiple sclerosis, knows there are others managing and living life to the full. You are not alone and better than that, we are here for one another. Life and living in the times we do is an exciting, wonderful gift. This can loose it’s glimmer if we’re diagnosed with a chronic illness. However, with every new day I remind myself that while I’m here, I will live to the fullest of my being, share my knowledge and expertise, have lots of fun and do my all to serve others.
RosieMaisto So I’ve been off work since mid November due to the worst relapse I’ve had to date. The right side of my body had a complete meltdown (what a drama queen my body is ha). But seriously, I can’t begin to explain how difficult it has been. It felt like a complete loss of independence.

Sit back, kick off your shoes and stay a while…don’t forget your coffee (or adult sparkling beverage if needed)…

Life hands us all some detours for sure, but it’s all about what you do with what’s dealt your way be it good, bad or indifferent. Isn’t it?
Staying Healthy With MS I’ve climbed a massive mountain and its pretty empowering taking back the control of your life and your body. I have so much more gratitude now for how incredible our bodies are. OMS has changed my life for the better. I think i’m more educated about prevention of illness through diet and lifestyle now and its had a hugely positive effect on me and my family.

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 15 years old, so have had it for more than half of my life. I love yoga, food, coffee, family, travel, music, movies, crochet and wine, not necessarily in that order! I thought a blog would be a good way to put down some of my random thoughts and to connect with other MSers like me.

Own Multiple Sclerosis The first place to start is to realize that MS isn’t a hopeless death march. I actually have mixed feelings about being diagnosed with MS.
