welcome to TiMS, butterfly. sorry to hear your unpleasant news! i haven't tried avonex, but many here have. there's a specific avonex discussion forum, which you can find on the main index under the heading 'treatments'. i'm into the nutrition side of things, some of my thoughts and fave sites are included in my 'signature' links, below. again, welcome to the forum!
