Herb Garden

Does anyone have any suggestions for items to grow in my outdoor herb garden?

Also, what would you do with some of the herbs you suggest.

Last year I grew:

Basil
Feverfew
Rosemary
Catnip
Cilantro
Peppermint
Spearmint
Lemon Thyme
Oregano
Flat Leaf Parsley
Bee Balm

Mostly just for the beauty of the herb garden.

Frustrated -- Help!

I am at my wits end, and hoping for some help.

I work in EMS, so I know how things run with the healthcare system-- the good, the bad, the ugly. I'm getting some serious ugly right now and I don't know which way to turn to try to resolve it.

I presented with what they think is MS this past weekend, and spent three days in the hospital. They did MRI's of my brain ...

Any luck with steroids for PPMS?

I recently encountered a local well-known MS Expert (not my own neuro) who was adamant about wanting me to try IV steroids, then Tysabri if I had
a positive response to the steroids. He pretty much told me my own neuro,
another well known expert in this state was wrong to treat me with antibiotics, oral fumarate and vit D only. Has anyone with a PPMS diagnosis had any luck with IV steroids? I hate ...

New, and Terrified

Hello all.

I'm new to the site, and a little bit (read: a lot) terrified at the moment, while I try to reach out and find some answers for myself regarding MS. I just returned home from a three day hospital stay where 99% diagnosis was made for MS. No lesions found on brain in contrast and non-contrast MRI; pending C-spine MRI (as they think it's originating there, or possibly brain stem) and neuro-ophthalmology assessment ...

Just curious...

Just curious about something...

If you were involved in a clinical trial, it stopped, lost funding, numerous people had absolutely no luck on the medicine, or something else was out there that has shown darn near 100% effectiveness, would you continue to try to get the drug financed or would you admit defeat and move on?

The reason I ask is I know of some folk who are pretty high up in some MS groups, ...

Tysabri / Copaxone combo

As a major shareholder in Teva and Biogen, this will make Harry Z very happy - a combo trial of tysabri + copaxone. Harry has managed to talk both of these drugs down which have seen the share prices fall in both companies - crafty Harry then bought up more shares at low prices.

Do you hear him denying it? No - he's enjoying another cruise with his lady friend off the coast of Cuba. ...
