Wow, it's really good to see other FF's out there. I was diagnosed in June, after leaving work with what I thought was an eye infection. Turns out it was optic neuritis and the docs did a good job getting on it quickly. I have been with my Dept for 13 years. I am a Capt. and I haven't told anyone in the Department yet. I sought out the best dr.s in California, and just had my second round of tysabri. My eye is still getting better, but it's not 100% yet. I have been thinking about moving to a slower company, but I can't bring myself to do it yet. I still love running calls, and the doctor says slowing down won't lower my chances of a relapse.
Now that I have dialed in the dr. and the medication, my next step is to focus on my diet. I eat healthy already, but after reading Dr. Wahls book, I am thinking about going that route. Fireguy, you mentioned a proper diet in your post. What has worked for you guys/girls out there. Wahls diet is strict and there isn't a lot a measurement to see if it is actually helping. Feels good to vent, let me know what diets you all have tried. Also, has anyone gone to or considered going to the Carrick brain institute in Texas?
