driver's lisence suspended, voluntarily?

this is sort of long. it's some of my feelings on losing my driver's license. Which at the point isn't much of a big deal, but I'm making it one. Californians love their cars, I guess, Everything is spread out, here.

Dealing with an MS parent


I'm posting here because I'm really not sure where else to turn for advice on this. My mother was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 1999. She has definitely declined since then, but is still pretty functional in terms of mobility, and less so dexterity. She has improved a good deal since starting Tysabri about one year ago. However, the cognitive decline has really been an issue as of late. She has marked emotional lability ...

I've got a question since I feel I'm being nailed by Anthem in the same way UHC nailed me.

Does anyone else pay that much who is insured? I'm curious because this is the ...

2. HiCy and then Copaxone
3. 3 different dose amounts based on a blood test they have developed.

So ...

New to this site

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site. I'm 28 and was diagnosed in October on 2007. I knew what was wrong before doctors would confirm. It took a month to get that confirmation. I was already on to dealing with it.

Anyway, I have a 2.5 year old son, am married, haven't had a relapse and am on Copaxone. We are thinking of having another baby. Any encouragement or any advise? My next neuro appointment ...
