Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. If you can be understanding when she doesn't feel up to it, be supportive when she is feeling low and enjoy the good times I think you will be fine! She is actually home right now due to a "flare up". I'm hoping we can have our second date either this weekend or next. You sound a lovely guy, interested, considerate and committed..
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...

I knew something was very wrong with me and I would see doctors who would tell me nothing is wrong with me yet they couldn't explain my symptoms or why I would talk with a slurred speech. It has been interesting watching treatments change over the course of 36 years.
They would just write me prescriptions for problems I didn't have and it wasnt any better when I got taken to the ER they wrote it off as a headache because they too didn't know what was wrong with me. Things that have been rough for her is her attitude became negative which is not the path you want to go down.
When I was 25, I don't think that I would have been able to do it, but people mature over time and their values and priorities piece of advice-try not to do too much along the way of caretaking until you are in a serious relationship (dating at least 6 months).
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.The symptoms of multiple slcerosis makes life very difficult and I was wondering if there are others out there who suffer too.I was recently diagnosed in early October before it had been misdiagnosed as a stroke in July. So, I have a small idea of the disease that she has to live with. It's more about being in a relationship with someone who has MS. MS is a bit of a rollercoaster, there are good periods/bad periods, it is characterised as a progressive disease but what that progression entails is different for every person. I'll make sure I say that again during our next date so she knows that I won't be disappointed. So, I would say acknowledge the disease and be considerate of any special needs but then go on and enjoy yourselves. We discussed her cat for a little while then I asked how she was feeling. I want to be as helpful as I can, but I don't want her thinking that I'm trying to take away her independence. This is my personal take on MS, your lady's take might be very different! " I told her before that, if we made plans and then the day came and she didn't feel up to going out, that I would understand. When I think of what my husband does, it's something of a balancing act to acknowledge my disease and give me the extra rest time I need but not to give the disease too much weight because I still want him to think of me as attractive and a partner in this. She texted me last night to tell me that her cat is finally eating again. Nobody wants to be a party pooper, and as much as we would like to do everything that a healthy person can do unfortunately for many of us its not realistic. I replied back that I have been reading about MS and numbness was one of the symptoms I learned about. A short time later I sent her another text telling her that I hope she was able to get a good nights rest and feel better in the morning. I get the feeling that nobody has ever done that before and she doesn't know how to feel about that.
