Reminder to neuros

I'm a bit hesitant about posting this because it's about those of us at the extreme end of the MS spectrum. Please remember that it's very, VERY unlikely to be you or to paint a picture of your future, but until we are finally rid of this disease, (which won't be too long, I'm sure), it's just a reminder to neurologists that while we are waiting, we have to live a life, and some of ...
