I second that motion. NOW, I am "glad" this site has become boring. To me, that means no one else has come down with this sh!t and needs us. Don't get me wrong, you peeps are like my intimate family. I log on or check in here about 10-15 times a day, to see whats happening in everyone elses world, everyone else that means something to me!

dignan - Oh, yes there has been turmoil at the TIMS site before. Do you remember back in 2004 when there was a big ruckus about research being posted and followed by Deb? She had written a paper (like Cheer). It was research she was doing to try and find an answer for her (I think she ended up not having MS). I can't remember what the fuss was all about now, but there were some pretty harsh words being slung her way.

Shit happens. It is just bound to happen once somebody goes out of their head and into their heart. I mean both are in everything. I just mean get totally emotional and not intellectualize it. It is bound to happen I would venture to say.

I have to join in with Catfreak, that this site is G'dsend.....It is still hard for me to understand, why and how I got into this MS.....finding this site by chance (when I google for the new Rebif formulation), it made a big difference and I know I am not alone in this.

So, if all of you send jokes, music and even fight/get argumentative, that is fine with me, since in my family, they don't want me to talk out or say how I feel and what is going on inside of me, especially with the weather being so hot.......Here on this site, we are all in the same boat, and hearing what you say, helps.

thankx, :)

I'm probably part of the reason for this, so my apologies to all.

But don't worry - with lots going with work, etc., and spending too much time on the computer anyways, I won't be having much of a presence, at least in the forseeable future.

the thing is, i just feel a tendency... that the variety of opinion we used to have, is getting funneled into dichotomy... and we're not really sussing out the whole elephant any more :(

It's true Jimmy!

We are not sussing out he whole elephant. But, that does not change the fact that there are loads of opinions and theories here, We need them all. Some theories will come and go, others will stay around and make a small difference other a hugh difference.

We all need each other, I think we do anyway. Regardless of what treatment we choose to take or not take. Look at you for instance, you choose not to take a CRAB or Tysabri or anything else, but you have done all this research into vitamins and minerals and you are doing great! You have helped so many people including me.

I on the other hand have been on Rebif and could not tolerate it, but, I still share my opinion and story on the Rebif thread because I think I have something to give in that area. I am now on Ty and will share there as long as there are posters and questions. I will have the CCSVI Intervention and hope that it at least gives me symptom relief that nothing else has to date and I will share there.

This may not make any sense at all but without each and every story we tell where would we be?

jimmy, I think there are certain parts of the elephant best left un-sussed.

Lyon,

I figured "sussing" out by guessing what it meant in the context of the comment, but I had to look up "dichotomy" too!!!

Just shows how intelligent Jimmylegs is! When somebody make me google a word they have my attention.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.


Sometimes it feels like a dichotomy but it is really not at all.

Godspeed.
