Retired and unable to enjoy it! Are you driving?

:?: So after fighting SSA for two years I finally achieved the bliss of full disability. It is not enough to use for exotic travel, but it came with Medicare and at least my medical expenses have gone down.

New to injections and bit freaked out!

Hi All,
I was diagnosed with MS in Aug this year and am now on my first week of injections with Copaxone. It's been a bit of a whirlwind from diagnosis to this point and am feeling a bit scared and alone with this whole injecting thing. When I inject I get a stinging sensation afterwards... this I can cope with but it's much worse on my arms and bottom. Really painful, has anyone else ...

Gaba

I am a new member of this forum. As such, I am very interested in stimulating conversation about the many natural approaches to treating MS. Since I am on quite a few supplements and continue to read about others, I would like to start with my experience with Gaba.

After refusing to take any "drugs" for pain and spasms, my partner and I decided that lack of sleep was causing even more problems. Thus I ...
