Hi to the "Golden" MS'ers,
I haven't posted in this forum for sometime, so I thought I would check in. Sharon (Shayk), when do you get to retire? I retired in June of 2007 and it has made a world of difference in my MS. I was working a very stressful job which was really playing havoc on the MS symptoms. Since retiring, I have been able to spend time on me. My migraine headaches are gone, gone, gone! I still have problems with my left leg, but the WalkAide has helped with it. Other than my foot drop and a weak left leg, I really do not suffer from any other MS symptoms. The cold here in Colorado will remind me to bundle up (cold affects me more than the hot). I visited with a friend and a notable MS neurologist a couple of weeks ago. He was surprised to see that I had done so well (and especially at my age!). I have been taking LDN since May of 2008 - no dramatic, positives - just a very slow realization that I am getting stronger and that I feel great. Thankfully, I am able to do just about anything I want.
I admire all of you who are still working - it's tuff! Some people just don't get it when you are so tired you can't even talk.
Take care to all and wishing you the best health in 2009!
Sharon (the other Sharon)
