You may remember my last post, where I rattled on and on, bragging about how I use my diet and exercise to keep my MS at bay? Well, a few days after that ER trip, still feeling tight in the chest without illness, still elevated heart rate consistently, feeling faint… I thought: what if I’m […]

At long last… after a full month of non-use… I’m finally back on Rebif! My insurance had changed pharmacy delivery providers (as this medication gets shipped to me on ice), and I got 1 day’s notice of this change before I ran out of the previous month’s supply. How much time I spent on the […]

which had nothing… well, nothing directly… to do with MS. In fact, I’ve been joking with some folks that this is my body’s way to remind me that MS is just nothing but background noise in my life.

Most of them slow down the rate at which our immune system destroys our myelin (the protective layer around our nerves), as well as delay the onset of another exacerbation/flare-up. (Hence, most DMDs are targeted at the […]
