Hello from Romania

Postby Petru » Wed Nov 14, 2007 2:17 am

My name is Petru from Romania.
I am 47 and I was diagnosed with MS in 1985
My initial diagnosis was RRMS, I had optic neuritis in my right eye.
Now I have SPMS
I currently take Betaseron from 2005 and lots of vitamins
I have four sons, 26, 24, 19 & 17. I hope and pray they never get MS, but if they do, at least there are better treatments today.
I'm really happy I came across this site

All the best. Image

Hey Petru

Nice to meet you and welcome to the site. It sounds as if you have a lovely family and are coping well with your disease.
I think you are the first Romanian I have met - this site is a veritable United Nations, and by the way, may I compliment you on your English? It is superb!

Hi Petru,
I'm a bit late, but welcome to the United Nations! I think you should not be too concerned about your sons: even in the unlikely event that one of them developed MS they would have many more options available to them than existed a few years ago, (a very long way from perfect, but at least there's something), and in the near future there will be many more treatments as well as better understanding of MS; earlier diagnosis; more widespread appreciation of lifestyle and dietary effects, and possibly even regeneration and repair.
I don't mean to sound unrealistically optimistic, but I believe the situation is much more promising now than it has ever been,
Dom
