Views, you tell me what you need and I will do the best I can on my end to get it done. We have a BOD meeting in November so let me know. I am afraid that sometimes (many times) our support portion gets ignored in favor of more "important" things. The problem is that those things are not l...

Several disorders affect the myelin in the brain. Peripheral neuropathy, multiple sclerosis and now RLS. Granted, they are in different ways but still it does make you wonder if or how they are connected.

I wish I had $.10 for every mistake (intentional or not) that is on the internet about WED. I'd have enough for some great research grants!

MS and WED

Ten years ago I went through a lot of testing for multiple sclerosis. It all came back inconclusive and eventually the doctor and I parted ways. Since that time I have been diagnosed with WED, fibromyalgia, sleep hypopnia and low thyroid functions. But certain symptoms have never fit into any of tho...

Betty, I truly hope you can get some help with all your health issues and emotional issues. I have been there too, we all have in one form or another. However, knowing you aren't alone doesn't help a lot at this point. Would your husband, friends or family be willing to look at some of the posts fro...

I don't mean to make this thread about me but Polar Bear, I am one of the least confident people ever. I hate having people mad at me or have conflict although I will stand my ground when I thing I'm right.

We just never know what life will bring next, do we? Your message hit home as I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself because I don't feel good. I llike to think of myself as living life to the fullest but it hasn't been happening lately. I'm too full of fear instead; what if I get laughed at, ye...
