Hello from Fabulous Las Vegas!

Postby IMMS » Tue Nov 01, 2005 2:43 am

I just want to say hello and introduce myself...

I'm 32, live in Las Vegas, am a stay-at-home-mom to 3 busy kids, ages 6, 4, and 2. I was officially diagnosed last summer, but of course had it for years before.

Because I don't have good insurance, I can't get the meds paid for. I was lucky enough to get into a study on Copaxone for 9 months and appreciated the meds, although the MRI's show that it really wasn't helping me...and to have to pay $2,000 a month for something that isn't working is just not up my alley. (I had 2 excasserbations while on Copaxone.)

In my research for answers on what I can do--I do not want to do nothing, but I can't afford the traditional treatments and I have many concerns with the side effects of them as well as their effectiveness (or lack thereof!). That search let me to LDN. If you've never heard of it, take a minute to check it out....it's some amazing stuff! Lots of great testimonials, it's very inexpensive, and (unlike ABCR's), besides slowing progression of MS, it actually helps you FEEL better!! I can't wait 'till my prescription arrives. I'll keep ya'all posted.

That's it for now...I'll just keep up with what's being posted and share my 2 cents from time to time. Feel free to e-mail or MSN messenger me !

Have a great day everyone,

Christine

Hi Christine,
it's great to have you with us.

Please note that all the major MS drug manufacturers have programs that deliver reduced cost (or even free) medicines to those who cannot afford them outright (or don't have good insurance coverage). Perhaps it is worth investigating... ?
