First injection of Tovaxin?/placebo

Hi again everybody. Well, my much delayed first injection happened yesterday. I was a bit discouraged at first since I saw absolutely no site reaction on either arm.

As others have said many websites sit on the fence with some of the information they give, and as MS is a life changing event, it is helpful to see the good and the bad in the disease from fellow MSer's with millions of ...
