Poem by Chidioch Tychborne in the Tower of London

This poem was written before Chidioch's execution. When I heard it yesterday it brought back all the anguish of diagnosis and the life to which we are condemned.

My prime of youth is but a frost of cares,
my feast of joy is but a dish of paine:
My crop of corne is but a field of tares,
and al my good is but vaine hope of gaine.
The day is past, and yet I ...

Don't read this on a full stomach

These two research papers should not be read on a full stomach. Remember the old theory - that MS was an inflammatory disease (auto-immune), lesions are the result of the attack on myelin (the white matter) etc etc etc. It took the researchers 50 years to come up with the theory and to develop drugs which have little real impact on this disease.

Now - the tune has change. MS involves the white matter and ...

Hello from Fabulous Las Vegas!

I just want to say hello and introduce myself...

I'm 32, live in Las Vegas, am a stay-at-home-mom to 3 busy kids, ages 6, 4, and 2. I was officially diagnosed last summer, but of course had it for years before.

Because I don't have good insurance, I can't get the meds paid for. I was lucky enough to get into a study on Copaxone for 9 months and appreciated the meds, although the MRI's ...

No further relapses until July 2005 when my leg went numb and I had some gait issues. After visiting several neuros and reading many books and articles I settled on the following treatment plan (for now anyway).

1. Swank diet - Although not scientificically proven to help MS, I figure ...
