On October 3rd and 4th, I will be biking 150 miles to support the National Multiple Sclerosis society. The MS 150 City to Shore is a annual event starting at Woodcrest train station in Cherry Hill, NJ and ending in Ocean City, NJ. The return ride is the next day. To donate, visit my facebook page or click the link below.

This will be my second year participating. Last year we were respectable at an avg. of 15 mph. This year we hope to hold 17 to 18 mph.

With the current economy, donations and grants for MS research is down, and money raised here helps to augment these lost MS treatment research dollars. The last 18 months has shown promising breakthroughs in MS treatment. Links to a few such resources are below. /idUSTRE50S7KZ20090130 intriguing-leads-on-the-horizon/index.aspx

This money also supports community programs to help those living with MS. I can personally attest that these resources are useful to families with someone with MS. The national MS Society provides adaptive tools and equipment as well as programs to keep those living with MS and their families informed of new drugs, clinical trials, and offering support groups.

There are 11,000 families in the Delaware valley living with MS, my family being among them. There are over 400,000 people nationally living with this devastating and unpredictable disease.

Ten years ago, I couldn't walk because I suffered a severe MS attack that left me half paralyzed. I spent six months in recovery and therapy just to regain the ability to do everyday things like write with a pen or use a spoon to eat, I spent another year working hard to regain my mobility by practicing yoga and acupuncture.

While I was recovering, I vowed to change my life. I adopted a healthy lifestyle and diet along with a strong will to overcome this disease. I decided that when I regained my ability to walk again, I was going to spend every day living my life to the fullest.

I would like to offer prayers for everyone here who needs them, I will include it in my prayer book.

I am a 34 year old female who, within the last year, started experiencing some awful symptoms. I never feel normal anymore, I can't lose weight. I suffer debilitating headaches, vision disturbances, pins and needles in random and some specific areas like my left shoulder blade, my right thigh and bottom, and often my hands. And I have a small depth perception issue, among other things.

Today is an especially bad day, the vertigo and nausea has me today and wont let go. The past three days have not been joyful or comfortable.

5 months ago I recieved an MRI that said there was an area of question, if real it would most likely be MS. Who words an MRI report like that? If Real. : /

Anyhow, I am awaiting a neuro appt, my PCP set me up for June but with the help of the National MS Society I found Dr who would take me in April. It's rough because I don't know that I have MS, all that I know for sure is that there is a possibility and that I DO NOT feel normal, and I hate to constantly complain to family and/or friends so I just smile and go on with life without saying much of anything. I am just very thankful that right now I am a stay at home mom and can afford to sit down and take it a little easier when I need to.

I just ask for a few prayers of courage, strength, and support. Also any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Michelle.
This is Gary, from Texas.
I'm new to the forum and see that your post is a couple of months old so you may never get this.
I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS in 2008.
You probably have the results of all further testing by now and if you do have ms, please know that you have prayer support.
I encourage you and everyone else with ms to research Terry Wahls' website. She is a physician who has been successfully treating her own ms, mainly through diet. I'm new to trying her methods and hope to post results as time goes by.
May God bless and keep hearts turned toward Him.

Prayer request
Need prayers please! I feel so alone with this stupid disease!
Married but my hubby seems to think denial is the way to cope, not helping me or seeing the truth of what is going on. He sits and plays games (at 50 years old) while I try to clean and cook... Meager attempts at each! I can no longer work and awaiting help from social security that may never come. Bills piling up! I really sometimes just want to stop all this madness and give up. Why live for more pain? Each day is just more collection calls and horrible physical and emotional pain. I have no clue how to go on like this!
I must include that I am very grateful for what I do have so I've not gone over the cliff yet, I just feel so very despite. Hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Please pray that my husband finds some empathy and begins to help. And that by some miracle my social security comes through soon.

Very thankful for your prayers
