Grad school was for occupational therapy--which turned out to be quite serindipitous, given my diagnosis. i have been reading posts on this site for a full day now...as in, i have done little else besides read post after post and article after article. i LOVE how much research is posted here. i am leaning towards antibiotic therapy combined with LDN (as long as the LDN and abx's are not contraindicated) and nutritional/dietary approaches, but still have much to consider before starting any of it. i have been given a tremendous amount of food for thought and i appreciate that. i have no desire to ever take a DMD again. the cost-benefit ratio is just not appropriate for me, not now at least. my doc recommended copaxone at the time of diagnosis. i really gave it a try but the nightly shots, pain, swelling, bruising, and itching don't work for me. i had a reaction to injecting in my arms twice that was, quite frankly a top 5 in terms of pain. not sure if i just injected too deeply or what.
anyways, this board is great and has given me a new direction in my treatment. one that i am actually excited about and invested in, which feels good.
