This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
"Previous research has suggested that in people who already have the chronic disease – which affects the brain and spinal cord – stressful events make flare-ups more likely. In the new study, the authors looked at whether stress raised a woman's risk of getting the disease, and couldn't find a link."
Take the same number in ms patients and follow their disease studying progression or virus or venous abnormalities or whatever. Even if stress didnt relate to ms who gives a flyin f!?@ im sorry i just cant rationalize this study and beyond that the initiative of the national ms society to even post something so rediculous bewilders me!!
I wonder if my disability would have been as pronounced had i been layi g on a beach sipping margAritas the last 20 years as opposed to building a business a house a family worrying about lifes pressures? DAmn i wish this study would have come out years ago id be running in a 3k as opposed to bumping walls with my wheelchair. Brilliant work. Bravo!
One last thing then im off my soapbox with help of course. How long will they tell us 400000 people have ms? I have 4 people at work alone which accounts for basically 20percent. We all know people who know people that know others with ms. How about studying that you big bad researchers? Ok im done Promise
It shows how stupid the NMSS really is...if they would update their numbers, there would be more funding for research. Oh wait! That would just mean more @#! studies that line the pockets of academia and every other useless bureaucrat wanting to waste money. Maybe kickbacks to the NMSS???
Think about it, if everybody knows somebody with MS, these numbers probably correlate to something that would make headlines for weeks!
