I made a movie with other MS people

I wanted to show people MS does not have to stop you living. You can still live and do things even though you're retired or sitting in wheelchair like I am.

The shortmovie is non-profit, free and bilingual, Finnish and English.

Enjoy!

Big Data

Some time ago I discussed problems with Facebook. However, Facebook is just a symptom of a much larger issue.

Here's an interesting documentary that discusses how big data is used and the coming tsunami of the role of big data in our lives, The Human Face of Big Data.

The irony of posting this here is not lost on me...

anyone like me?

It has been almost two decades. Drugs, no drugs and drugs again. Therapy, therapy and more therapy. Drop foot and though FES gave me hope at one time is helping just a bit. Still better than nothing.

Horrible Spasticity

I've been dealing with horrible spasticity since April and has gotten worse. I don't sleep much anymore at night and I work full time. My MRI shows no changes (minimal) and thoracic spine has no lesions. I've tried so many medications including sativex. I'm so tired and done with it all. I've also tried amitripyline, carbonmezipine, sinemet, quinine, nabilone and nothing. Please help....

So I've noticed lately that along with the pain in my left arm and leg that my muscles seem to get fatigued really fast lately. Holding something like in my arm, even something lightweight, starts to hurt really fast. Anyone else have this going on?

MS and goofing around with it with friends

Hello guys,
I wanted to know if some of you let your friends joke around with your MS. Well, I let my friends do it at first after I got diagnosed. It helped me to relax about it and not feel so bad about it. For an example, if some of my body part, like the arm or finger was bleeding I would say "Well there goes my MS", innocent stuff like that.
Now the ...

oh boy new old learning curve

i have been haphazardly rehabbing a reconstructed ACL and torn MCL since about this time 2013 and most recently got into the local rock climbing gym. i own all the dino-marked kiddie bouldering problems as well as the self-belay on the alphabet letters, and can rock a solid 5.4 on the top ropes (ie a casual vertical stroll also readily achieved by small children). i have a selection of delightful finger pad rips, each expertly ...

Natural help for bladder issues

I've developed what is for me a mostly-annoying heightened sense of having urine in my bladder. It's like my bladder muscle says "hey guess what, you could pee right now if you wanted to!" even though I don't want to, and don't really need to - but it feels like I could. The frequency is annoying.

Anyway, I happened upon some research that suggested that pumpkin seed oil helps. I've been taking it for about ...
