I have just read Dr. Lisak's list of credentials and honors and rewards and his 'interests". All I could think of was how difficult it must be for someone who has spent his entire professional life going down one avenue to suddenly have to switch gears and buy into a completely different route... MS is more than an "interest' to his patients[ that's US!]. We can't turn out the lights and go home at the end of the day, having the option to shut off the thoughts of the day. We live with the reality of the subjects of his research.

I am exceptionally impressed with the contributions of the members of this forum. Ignoring MS'ers is out of the question! [/i]
