Hi everyone I am new to this but my fiancee has been diagnosed RRMS and I am trying to find out as much as I can to be supportive. If there are any books or sites other than this one that anyone can suggest that would be great.

Hello ajhelper,

You're wonderful to want to educate yourself about your fiancee's MS There are plenty of sites out there where you can learn about MS and also interact with people who are caregivers of loved ones with MS who are experienced and knowledgeable. Here are several:

https://www.facebook.com/MultipleSclerosisDotNet

http://multiplesclerosis.net/

www.mymsaa.org

www.msfocus.org/"00E

www.nationalmssociety.org

If you type multiple sclerosis into your search box,
you'll find a lot more sites as well, there's lots of info about MS out there.

Hope this helps.

Hello ajhelper,

Good on you for wanting to delve into the arcane mysteries of MS. Please keep in mind that all MS websites are not created equal and that there is still plenty of misinformation out there.

The websites the Kim provided are a good place to start and you can be pretty certain that any information you glean from those sites will be as accurate and up-to-date as possible.

Let us know how you and your fiancee are making out, okay, like in the front seat or the back seat or the bed of the pickup?!

Smiling in Alaska,

Dave
