I had such a bad day

Yesterday was a frightening day... I had not slept properly, not done my exercises (all because of time restraints and changes in the schedule) and was stressed by water in my basement. Mannnn, did I ever get it. My leg did not want to respond to me at all. I had forgotten how to walk and my balance was terrible. I am so afraid of becoming totally useless.

NMSS funded research

A list of recently funded NMSS research is attached. Rather annoyingly they cannot afford to fund a trial of estriol but manage to fund numerous mouse focused research.

ECTRIMS 2006

The ECTRIMS conference starts today. I attach the link to the scientific programme for each day. You can click on individual presentations / posters and see the abstracts (some are not available yet).

Art from the Boston Cure Programme is attending (I think) and usually produces an excellent summary. This will probably be available next week. I must admit, some of the abstracts are pretty dull. There's quite a bit on FTY 720 and Tysabri. ...

Hello, 3 mo from diagnoses in Seattle
