Discussions that mention ditropan

Multiple Sclerosis board

Hello, my name is Leslie, and I am 29 years old. I've had MS since I was 21. I have been married for 11 years, and I have two children, ages 3 and almost 2. We recently learned our 2 year old is probably autistic and we are undergoing testing for her at this time.

I lost site of how important it truly is to be around those who also fight the MonSter. I tried to focus on being a mom and staying in those types of online forums. . but very few people understand the pain and depression associated with MS. . and I was labeled an "attention seeker" and "too whiny about having MS." Ultimately, I was banned from the boards for being too negative. Ironically, I think I have a very good outlook. . .. But on some days, YES, all you can do is talk about how much it sucks to have MS.

I would say I have 1 to 2 days per week that merit whining, but I will refrain from doing so online! LOL

I first tried to join an AOL MS board, but I did not like the format. Then I tried to make my own board. . but didn't know how to advertise it! LOL I'm not that computer literate! :)

Anyway, my full time job was a social worker. This past April, I became unable to work anymore. I am on short term disabiilty and have applied for social security disability.

I take Zanaflex for spasms, Effexor for depression, Baclofen (and soma) for spasms, ditropan for bladder, Meclizine for dizziness, and I was recently prescribed valium for SEVERE dizziness (the kind where you can't even hold up your head).

I have taken both Copaxone and Avonex, and am starting Rebif. I do not like neurologists as a general rule, but I LOVE my regular doctor.

Anyway, I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and finding a new home here (where it's okay to have bad days from the MS).
