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,
"IMMS" (to be read..I am a MESS!....best way to describe how I've felt since diagnosis!)
