Hello everyone and welcome to June 2010 in Review. Thank you so much for supporting this site and the other community members in their struggles and triumphs with MS. This site is an incredibly valuable asset to those who use it. from those who have had MS for decades to those who fear a diagnosis: thank you.
In case you missed it...
Steve checked in with a post for Father's Day with the perspectives of his three daughters on having a father with MS. A must-read for any parents!
Lisa Emrich provided a wonderful series on MS in Men and Women. She started with asking if gender even matters, and proceeded to analyze testosterone, sex hormones in women, estriol in women, and how disability and mental health vary by gender.
Vicki spent the month discussing MS and relationships. Specifically, how do you tell certain people in your life about your MS, and how do you explain it? Vicki talked about telling her kids when they were teenagers, maintaining a relationship with her caregiver, dealing with grandkids, and telling co-workers about your illness. She also hosted a Question of the Week, asking readers what the biggest change in your relationships have been since your diagnosis.
Amy Gurowitz shared her story about when to tell others about your MS in her post, University of Disclosure*.
Amy also provided us with an intriguing Question of the Week. To celebrate her birthday and anniversary of MS diagnosis, she asks: what have you learned about yourself since you were diagnosed?
Finally, we posted a downloadable guide about taking disease-modifying drugs. Print it out and keep it handy!
Have a wonderful summer everyone!
