Then Dr Hammond came back with the famous Dr ...

Human endogenous retroviruses again

I could SWEAR I had posted this last night, but right at this moment it's probably mystifying readers of a forum about using mayonnaise during foreplay.

Because I work, I make sure to take the Avonex shot on a Friday or Saturday night, just in case it kicks my butt (which is known to happen with me, in this short time).
I just started Avonex, it will be my third shot ...
