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

Thanks for this abstract, Bob. Will have the hubby bring it in to his neurologist. She's been scratching her head over his high lesion load and relatively low disability. In her words, it was "unprecedented." But according to this, maybe not...

Hubby's been researching brain plasticity, and we have already theorized that his brain has been rewiring itself over the years, prior to his diagnosis. He does alot of meditation and visualization, and his job is very mentally taxing/problem solving/creative. He has also kept mobile and exercising thru all of his various symptoms. Obviously, no idea what the future holds, but he's very grateful for the ability to keep working and moving.

such a mystery,

I've been accused of being overly optimistic, but I think it should be obvious to anyone who takes a good look to see that we are surrounded by reasons for optimism on many fronts. I have been disappointed that things are going slower than I like, but good things ARE on the way and in the not too distant future.


Bob, you are becoming my favorite cheerleader for this rotten illness.

Marcia...agreed! Bob has helped me thru many a dark day.

Here are the current books hubby's reading-
"The Mind and the Brain- Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force"
by Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD (UCLA) and Sharon Begley
also-
any book by Larry Dossey, MD. who writes on the power of prayer and meditation in the healing process. Current one is "Healing Words."
