Greetings from central Illinois

Postby lyndacarol » Sun Dec 25, 2005 11:40 am

To introduce myself, I will explain that I can't remember how I found this site, but I feel it will be comfortable and accepting of me as a person with multiple sclerosis. The community members, seem to be open to ideas and willing to share and help each other.

I am a 56 year old female living in Central Illinois, wife to a wonderful guy for 34 years, mother of a 24 year old son, and was diagnosed with MS in 1992. Since the MS diagnosis, I have had a steady physical decline, averaging about one exacerbation per year. I have used the B drug (Betaseron), then A drug (Avonex), then C drug (Copaxone)--with no apparent benefits; but take nothing currently. Although I have NO background in science, I read and think (the two activities left to me) and will find the appropriate venue here to share some of those ideas with you.

Welcome Lyndacarol

Yes, this site is full of great people and ideas. I want to invite you to www.CPn, also. Please read in this site Regimens and Antibiotics, particularly, and go to CPn Help. This all may change your life as it has for a growing number of us with MS and related diseases.

2010 5 years 4 months Now on Amoxicillin, Doxy, Rifampin, Azith, and caffeine in addition to  flagyl. 90% normal good days-50% normal bad days. That is a good thing.
