    We're a "dual" kind of a family too:
    • I grew up in Saskatoon.
    • Met and married a guy from Kansas. Our kids were born and raised in Kansas.
    • Applied for a Canadian citizenship card for both of my kids, before they were 18, to document their dual-citizenship. They both have Canadian Social Insurance cards too, and are eligible to work there.
    • My 23 y.o. daughter met a Canadian from southern Manitoba about 4 years ago, and moved there. They've been married about a year and a half and live in Winnipeg now. She is currently a nursing student at University of Manitoba. She has worked as a head cook on a local rural golf course for the past 3 summers.
    • She has tried, so far unsuccessfully, to talk my 22 y.o. son into moving there. She misses him.
    • I'm still a Canadian citizen; have not changed my citizenship. Have a resident-alien card ("green card").
    • My dad, and my siblings and their families still live in Canada (Saskatoon and Edmonton).
    • My daughter comes "home" to Kansas to visit about twice a year. And, we go to Canada about twice a year too.

    Hi, I'm not Canadian (wish I was!) but my husband is. I've been to Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, and few towns around all 3 cities. My husband is from Quebec but lived in Ottawa when we met. He moved here to America last year (2012) because of the Angela Chester case. She also married a Canadian but they refused to allow her to move there officially because she had MS. So we didn't even try, and he became a permanent resident here in the US a couple of weeks ago. However, I really wish that I could have moved there. I've always loved the country, and think its better than here!

    Sorry! I just saw that but I don't know how to put in in. I'm going through personal options now. You can put the name I have for Skype but send through gmail.

    Hi Carole,

    I can't seem to find your email. I don't think it's in your profile and I don't/can't use Skype.

    If it's here somewhere, point me in the right direction and I'll find it.

    Thank you for responding KeepinCool,

    I have an appointment with a neurologist at the civic. I don't want to see this doctor!

    My daughter got a call saying that I was accepted at the General Campus MS clinic, but they haven't yet called me.

    I wanted to know if the civic Neuro would have anything to do with this clinic.

    Does this clinic do the testing, what other treatments do they have, etc.

    If you send me an email I can give you my phone number. It might be easier than typing everything down. It's up to you.

    Thanks!

    Hi everyone!
    New here. Diagnosed in the summer, must have missed the first stages - diagnosed with SPMS right away, by the UBC MS Clinic.
    Been lurking here for a few months, decided to pipe up now - the thread had gone a bit stale ;-)

    Hi there,
    I also live in ottawa and was recently diagnosed with ppms. I am 35 years old and quite nervous of what is to become. I am a 3.5 on the scale. What are you and who is your doctor?
    I have been slowly progressing - started with a cane and now in a chair. It took 20 years to get where I am now. I am secondary but still have relapses. Dr. Freedman has been with me from the start and he is puzzled sometimes by my relapses. I am presently being assessed for a Baclofen Pump. I have done the needles and the 2 chemos. I am a big advocate for physio therapy and MS. I also have a variety of other health problems. I am 41 and a mother of 2 teens. How about you?

    Ottawa now, originally an Albertan

    I have been diagnosed for almost 20 years, I am 40 now. I am now in a wheelchair for the last 4 years. I am secondary progressive with relapses. I also have had a variety of other medical issues in the past year. I am a mom of 2 teens and the wife of a very supportive husband. Is there anybody else out there from Alberta or Ottawa.
