lets move South

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

If I can put together a get-together next spring here in Naples would you come? I was thinking about scheduling it around spring break. We are leaving for about 3 weeks next week and I am planning on working on it when I get back. I have had several people tell me they would vacation here then. You would get an idea how you feel here once again.

Loriyas,
What a kind offer. I suppose like everything else my ability to plan that far ahead has suffered. My father lives in Pompano and has been trying endlessly to get us down there. The only problem with that (no patriarchal disrespect intended) is that my father is there. My family has a great relationship as long as we are not physically subjected to one another.
Let's keep in touch and see where life goes.
Be Well,
Lars

Lars,
I have often wondered if I would have been diagnosed with MS if I would have stayed in Texas and not have moved to Colorado for four years. I don't remember having any symptoms until about a year after moving up there.
Since moving back to Texas, I have not had any problems, which I am surprised at. I was worried about the heat, but it hasn't seemed to bother me at all.

Its just one thing that I will alway think about.

I have lived in Mississippi for 40 years, moved back here at the age of 9 when my Dad retired from the military. (born in VA, lived in AK and RI up north)

I had Mono in feb 2000 and have not been the same since. I got my DX of RRMS in april of 08 after being on the fence for 5 years.

I have the best Neuro in the US. I have to drive 2 hours to Cullman, Al but it is well worth it.

I heat is sometimes to much to bear but you learn to live with it and stay in when it is unbearable.

One of the highest risk of MS is in Sardinia(Italy). This island is plenty of sun in the Mediterranean see.

Just have a look to this articles:

Interesting, Rita.
I've been to Sardinia, it's a beautiful island, great beaches and a gorgeous mediterranean climate. Lots of epidemiology studies have been done on Sardinians, because they are a genetically stable society. And their cancer and MS rates are much higher than the rest of Italy.

Either genetic predisposition or environmental to blame for MS in Sardinia- it sure ain't the sunshine or diet (lots of fish, olive oil, antioxidants)

Sardinia has an unusually large mining industry....maybe heavy metal toxicity?

Whatever it proves, less malaria is not the only possibility. What did WHO use to kill the mosquitos? Pesticide?

And what else happened on Sardinia around this time? Maybe they introduced sewage treatment plants, maybe got their first indoor plumbing, maybe filtered tap water, maybe children attending school regularly and thus sharing their germs? New and different foodstuffs introduced? Fertilisers and weedkiller? I don't know, must be recorded somewhere.

And was Sardinia occupied during the war, was there an influx of German gene material? Were the adult men in the army and where did they serve?

Bob,
To follow Red Sonja line of thinking, it is easy to consider a direct human connection if the dates, times and MS cases are indeed accurate. There always seems to be conspiracy theory for everything but in this case maybe there is some sense to be made of it. This seems to be a case of overnight MS and should be a hotbed of research. Biological research? Gene research? Alien landing site? (Bob, I know you can sometimes take things to literally but that is a joke). Although an island seems a perfect place to isolate a test on it's population. Just thinking.

I think that the alien theory is as good as anything. UFO's are really interesting to me and I think they are for real.

If aliens work for ya, I say go with it. I tend to lean more towards corrupt humans. The reason there is no definable link is that the Government/s don't want there to be one. It is their specialty you know. I wish I could somehow link Bush to all this, he's an easy target.
