Hi everyone, I have recently been diagnosed with MS and am mom of a 6 year old daughter who is noticing things like my IV from my 3 day IV solumedrol treatment, the sharps boxes delivered to my home for the Rebif injection therapy, telephone conversations about lesions on my brain, my husband and I discussing MS and me crying during the conversations. She seems to be taking all this in her stride and when she asks me a question, I try to answer it simply and honestly but not with too much detail that would cause anxiety. Does anyone have any resources, books or other ideas on how to discuss this with my daughter. She is very bright and curious and wants to know whats going on. Thanks in advance for any feedback you can give.
