If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

can't help but think this has something to do with my diagnosis, especially when many of my friends from high school that i am still in touch with suffer from chronic diseases such as lupus, diabetes, cancer, and narcolepsy. also, i know far too many young men that have had heart attacks from fresno too. i remember reading a long time ago that heart attack rates increase as the particulate matter in the air increases. i don't remember what study i was reading to give a reference or a direct quote and i don't remember anything about the mechanisms that might be responsible but i'm not surprised. particulate matter is a huge problem in the valley.
