Hi!

Hi to everybody here!

I've read a few threads on this board now and then over the years but never got around to joining.

I already belong to several MS message boards, and I've been on them for 5 or 6 years.

This place looks nice, and I hope to take part in some discussions here.

I was diagnosed with SPMS many years ago. I was on Avonex for 3 years but had to stop because I passed out and fell one night, a few hours after a routine Avonex shot. Now I'm not on anything, but Copaxone could be a possibility.

I look forward to visiting here! Happy 2007 to everyone!

Hello there. I'm SPMS too- but quite mild. If you're thinking about a new drug regime there's lots of info and personal experiences here to help you decide. All the best.

Hi Agate, :)

It's nice to see you here! This is a nice forum. I joined it a couple of years ago, then forgot I had joined. I came back and found I was already a member. :oops: :oops: So I just started really posting a couple of months ago.

I read your bio in the golden years forum, and enjoyed it very much, even though I've read it before on other forums.
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.

Thanks so much, Arron and ewizabeth.

People are probably thoroughly tired of reading my bio by now! I used to belong to one and only one MS board, and then it became two, then three. Now I'm afraid it's up to 5. :roll:

No way, I'm proud to know you with all of your accomplishments, I like reading about them, besides, we both like cats and flowers. Also, I think I belong to... let's see, from 5-7 MS boards. Yikes!
