My name is Lauri and I was diagnosed with MS in 2004. I started on Avonex and loved it but unfortunately had to switch to Rebif. I have gone on disability in the last year.

Hey Laurie

Good to meet you and welcome to the site, I am just sorry that you find yourself here :wink:

I hope that you are doing ok on the Rebif, if you don't mind me asking, why did you have to switch? I am on Avonex and have had ms for about 8 years.
I hope that you will find the site interesting and informative, the folks here are very friendly and so willing to share their wealth of experience and knowledge.
I am sure we all look forward to hearing more from you.

Regards
Al

I was on Avonex for a year and in that time had two relapses and 4 new lesions on my MRI so my neuro said not strong enough for me. I have been on Rebif for 2 years and still have two relapses a year but MRI was a bit better on it. Thanks for asking and hope to talk again, take care!!

Hello everyone.
I'm really happy I came across this site. It's been almost 3 years (2 weeks shy) since I was diagnosed.
I've been on steroids, beta seron, tysabri, and ivig with steroids. My initial diagnosis was RRMS, but found out Monday my new doc thinks it's SPMS. I'm so-o-o-o-o thrilled, as you can imagine.
I can't believe I haven't found this sooner!
Anyway, I'm really happy to have found this site.
See y'all around.
