Hello, Ewizabeth here

Postby ewizabeth » Fri Nov 03, 2006 10:23 am

Hi Everybody,

I'm known online as Ewizabeth at several websites. I'm married for 26 years, we have two sons, 23 & 25.

I work full time, four 10.5 hour days per week. I'm going to online college fulltime also, to finish my BSBA degree, should be finished in one year.

I was diagnosed with RRMS in January 2003, but probably had it for decades before. I'm 48 yrs old now.

I started with Avonex, then Rebif for five months, developed severe depression and anxiety. So switched to Copaxone in February 2005, doing ok but slowly getting worse in some ways. Luckily I have a desk job.

I currently take Baclofen, Trazodone and Zoloft for the MS. Also, blood pressure pills and estrogen, as well as allergy meds.

I'm going to try out for the Tovaxin phase IIb trial this month. If I don't get into it, I'll probably double dose Copaxone, my neuro gave me that option.

He also offered me Tysabri and some other trials, but I chose to try out for the Tovaxin study. Wish me luck! :)
Take care, Ewizabeth Previously Avonex, Rebif & Copaxone RRMS ~Tysabri, 31 infusions, ended 9/09. Starting Copaxone 12/09, waiting for Cladribine to be approved in 2010.

Hi Bob!

Try to say it three times fast! :)

Nice to see you here! What is your username on MS World?

I actually registered here a long time ago, but forgot about it... Imagine that! This is a nice site.

Yes, Fred can test the mods there. I know who you're referring to, and it was probably about Tysabri, right?

Just recently, the head of MS World has changed the rules there, so there may not be anymore "attacks" on those who have opposing opinions to Tysabri.

Don't get me wrong though... Tysabri is good for many, many people, and maybe someday I'll even need it. But it shouldn't be shoved down our throats when we go to MS World either.

I already like it here. :D I still have a lot of good pals there at MS World. But I am very long winded, so I can belong to several sites with no problem at all.... :wink:

That's awesome Bob! I hope your wife has fabulous results! :) It can be very time consuming to be in a trial, especially in the beginning... This will be my second one, so it isn't really all that bad...
