    New here

    I wanted to introduce myself. I am a 40 yr old SAHM of two girls (10 and 6). I am also a wife of 15 yrs. I have RRMS and have had it for 13 years.

    I used to belong to the MS20something for a while and then lost touch mid-way through my 30's. I've been wanting to join a new "group" for years but felt that facebook was not the right venue for me because I work professionally from there and wanted my privacy. I am hopeful that I will find it here.

    My disease is stable on Copaxone for 6 years now. I have one long term "left over" relapse disability which affects my dominant right hand and arm. I have long term weakness and numbness. The numbness in my right hand has been steadily getting worse over the last 2 years so I may be cross-posting in the other thread for assistive devices (lol).

    I am fortunate enough to be ambulatory and look like any other busy mom.

    I look forward to "meeting" you. Based off of the other topics listed I can say:

    I knew I had MS before starting a family
    I did invitro for my first, 2nd was an awesome surprise
    I did breast-feed both and felt great during pregnancy
    I believe breast-feeding is good for those with MS
    I do have fatigue at times and take nuvigil

    Hi! Nice to "meet" you.

    I'm also a mom of two, though mine are younger at 3.5 and 9 months. I also had mine after, long after, my DX. I BF, excercise as much as I can and just started Copaxone - though I was on Rebif before having my boys and it worked well for me then.

    This is the only MS board I've ever belonged to so I have no basis for comparison, but there are many super helpful and supportive posters.
    Aitch - Writer, historian, wondermom. First symptoms in my teens, DX'd in my twenties, disabled in my thirties. Still the luckiest girl in the world.


      Nice to meet you too


        my 2 miracles are 23 months and 9 months (boy and a girl! )
        I am 23 and have been dealing with my RRMS for 6yrs now. I'm taking Cop but am about to switch to either Gilenya or Tysabri.
        I'd love to make some ms-mommy friends, parenting (especially with ms) can be so very hard.
        Looking forward to hearing back from the 2 of you!
