Am following this thread with much interest...What a wealth of information and experience!
Ian, and HarryZ, I, too, will believe it when I see it. Lots of hope, but probably much less faith than either of you in the possibilities of recovering damages.
Marie, I had read once, on an MS site, that MS is considered the "polio of the 90's." I was exempted from all childhood vaccines, because of my mother's religious beliefs. I caught most of the diseases, except diptheria, tetanus, and polio (that I know of anyway, since I wasn't seen by doctors, then, either). But, as an adult, I did try to catch up on vaccines. However, the doctors have all told me that they no longer vaccinate for polio, because they consider it already erradicated. Still, have always wondered about the possibilty of contracting it. That would just be all I need, on top of MS
Anyway, Marie, I very much appreciate your polio analogy and how it relates in this discussion
Minai (whose experience on Doxy and Samento is going much, much better than expected, thus far!)
