Utilizing MS Networks to Become an Expert on the Condition

  • Hello All,


    I am coming to you with a need, a very specific need which, if satisfied, will help our MS community tremendously. 


    Questions & Answers

    You may or may not have noticed, but fewer and fewer people are answering questions lately.  It is tempting to think that the "experts" will have all of the answers, but you should know that we are just MS patients are you are.


    More HealthCentral Sites

    I haven't talked about it yet, but in addition to writing here at MultipleSclerosisCentral.com, I am writing at MyRACentral.com.  I've been working there as an "answerer" for a little while now, but it was just this week that my first "expert" post went up. I'm excited to be joining the wonderful family of patients on the rheumatoid arthritis site.

    At MyRACentral.com, I will be discussing life with multiple diagnosed chronic illnesses.  In addition to multiple sclerosis, I have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, major depressive disorder, and hypothyroidism.  I know that there are readers here who have both MS and RA.  I hope that you will join me both there and here to discuss our particular challenges.


    MS Symptom Management

    Since the beginning of the year, I've been writing posts which are more technical in nature with the Beginner's Guide to MS series which includes the MS Symptom Management series of posts.  These posts are forming a foundation of information which will be available here at MS HealthCentral to all readers who stop by.


    My request is that you will go through these posts and add to the volume of knowledge.  Leave comments and reply to comments.  This will help all of us searching for answers and tips specific to the topic at hand.  Having this information collected in one place will help to make our MS site more user-friendly and relevant.


    Thank You!!

    I really do appreciate the many of you who do go out of your way to help each other with information and support.  Of course, I always appreciate those who swing by and leave a comment on my own posts.  Any of you who read my personal blog, Brass and Ivory, know that I need as much support as anyone in this journey we share.


    Now, I hope you all enjoy the weekend.  Enjoy the spring weather and stay cool.  Thanks for reading.
