Hi, I have primary progressive MS. I have been dragging myself to work each day because I cannot afford to not work. I am a single parent of a 9 year old with no other income coming in. I just found out my position at the high school I work for is being eliminated for the next fiscal shool year so my last day of work will be June 30. I will be eligable to claim unemployment. I live/work in NH. I was wondering with disabilty. If I file for disabilty, will the time I am collecting unemployment be counted as my unemployed days towards disability? I know it is a min of 6 months you need to be unemployed before you can start collecting. I am hoping that I can at least collect unemployment for some of that time. I don't know how they can expect anyone to go 6 months without income as it is. Are we suppose to live on the streets and beg for food? I am devasted that I will be losing my job. I have been doing everthing I can to make things work. I know with disabilty I will only be getting about $1000 a month. I pay that in rent alone now. And I will not have health insurance or be able to continue any of my medications because of that for about 2-2 1/2 years after I get disabilty. NH does not have mandatory health insurance laws. So heaven forbid I need any kind of treatment for a while. If anyone that knows anything about this stuff or has been through it, please give me some advice. I am feeling so lost, ill and depressed right now.

I've been handling the challenges that MS has been throwing my way, or so I thought, until my most recent bouts of incontinence. I can't seem to get it under control lately.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
