Learning to shrug is the beginning of wisdom.

When you are with friends and they are saying or doing things that you dissagree with you have a choice to make. Make your opinions known, or lead by example. Although the 2nd option is not always easy, and you never get to see immideate gratification, I believe it is best.

Tomorrow I am going to turn in 2 applications, one for East Allen County Schools, and the other for Fort Wayne Community Schools. I am applying for a custodial position, it's not a glamerous position, but I think I will be able to use some of the skills I have aquired over the years. Also, working around kids would be good for me. We will see if anything comes of it. I promised myself a couple of weeks ago that I would officially start looking for employment on the 3rd, after giving the bakery time to make a decision. I would say the decision was made.....I think anyways. I would really appriciate any prayers for finding a job quick and easy. I do hate this part ever so much. :-/

Mikey,

I'm so glad you are applying for those jobs. I hope the info I sent you helped. Good luck! If I hear of anything else I will let you know. I have a question for you, if you have time. Have you been on Neurontin? Did it help with the pain or is there something you have used that is better? Thanks!

Anita,
I want to help answerer your question, but I don’t know what “pain” you are referring to. Are you suffering from Postherpetic Neuralgia, or is something else causing your pain? With my M/S, I haven’t really experienced any great pain….. It has thrown a lot at me, but not pain.

Mikey,

I have trigeminal neuralgia which is stabbing pain in my face and burning pain in my feet. I'm so glad you are not afflicted with any pain. One more question if you don't mind. Do you know of any chat rooms for MS people? Thanks for all your help.

Anita,
I do not know of a chat room dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis, If I did I would spend a lot of time in there. I do belong to a chat group, but it is for the Stem Cell treatment in China. There is a wide variety of illnesses talked about.

Anita,

A good guy who read our comments and saw that there was an interest in some form of Online Support for people with M/S. Well, he wrote me an E-Mail and gave me this site.

http://www.freewebs.com/msrefugees/index.htm

Go there, click on discussion boards. It is a forum, not a chat room. But, if you post a question and ask where you could find a good Chat Room, I can almost guarantee you would have plenty of help.

Hope this is helpful.

Mikey,

Wow! What a wonderful site! I was there today and chatted with some people with MS and I feel so much better. There is a 24 hour live chat there if you want to check it out sometime. Thanks again!
