I was first diagnosed in 1998, and was immediately put on Avonex. Well, I was on the Avonex faithfully for a couple of years, and still noticed my condition worsening. And for having lapses in insurance I was on and off the Avonex for 5-6 month intervals, up till this last Sept. Just this Year My Neurologist changed me to Rebif, which I have been on since March. I must say I don't miss the Avonex needle!
I'm a perfect example of what not to do when being diagnosed with MS
I have not seen the Neurologist on a regular basis.
I have not had regular MRI's.
So now, almost 9 years after my diagnosis, I plan on educating myself about the disease (better late than never huh?)
This place looks like it's full of useful information and nice people!
Please excuse my lack of computer manners and skills, I'm pretty new to this!
Anyway, Hello to everybody!
