“When I stopped pushing so hard, I found love,” Milliken says.

Revealing You Have MS Rosalind Kalb, Ph D, vice president of the Professional Resource Center at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in New York, says that dating with MS is not necessarily any more challenging than it is for anyone else.

“We don’t want people to think that just because they have MS, dating is not an option, that there’s nobody out there who would want them," Kalb says.

"People with MS do meet others and do form successful relationships and do get married.” One of the biggest questions you might have when dating is when to reveal that you have a chronic illness, especially if you don’t have any visible symptoms.

Sports-reporter-turned-videographer Kate Milliken had her heart broken when she was 32 and living in New York City.

The man she was about to marry called off their wedding.

When her heart healed, Milliken began dating again. Right two years later in 2006, when she started not feeling well.

“I woke up one Friday the week before Christmas feeling like I hadn’t slept at all,” Milliken recalls.

Doctors ordered an MRI to see why she was so fatigued, had trouble with balance, and had tingling in her hands.

Five days later, she learned she had multiple sclerosis. Milliken still wanted to be married with kids, like her friends, and was determined not to let her MS stand in her way.
