New ...very new

Postby acobennett » Tue Jul 03, 2012 1:57 pm

Hi my name is Beck. I am 32 and was dx with RRMS 2 (and 1/2) years ago, but whose counting? I am currently on Rebif (and have been for 2 years). I had one clinical episode ...and well that is it. I almost feel guilty when people say " Oh she has MS". mainly because I have been so lucky. I take my injections (with a minimum of crying and whining) and go for my neuro appts, MRIs and blood work and I am doing ...well great. I haven't done alot of research. I don't even know that much about the disease, so I figured I needed to get off my bum and start talking to people who do. Not doctors but people. What better place to do that then a place called "This is MS?" This is also the first forum I have joined so if I do something wrong let me know and I will try to do better. You may not hear from me much ( I am more of a reader then a poster-partly because I know nothing!) but I appreciate the opportunity to read and listen to everyones thoughts and advice on what maybe the scarest thing I have ever had to deal with. Thanks

welcome to the forum, aco, glad to hear you're doing so well!
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

welcome to tims beck.

i think u have taken two important steps today.

first u joined tims. here u will find a wealth of information and i feel information will give u the tools to control your life.

second u posted and got jimmylegs to respond. let me tell you jl will talk your ears off when it comes to all things nutrition. i think many people can spend their life in front of the tv eating bon-bons. pwms can't do that. nutrition is very important to u and jl is a great source.

of course as always, just my opinion.
