Finding the positives of MS

They call it "benefit finding", but I just think of it as looking on the bright side: I met my best friend while we were both in neurological rehab, (he had a terrible car-crash), and we were talking about it the other day -- I can't be glad that I have MS, but I know that, come that wonderful day when all this is over, I will be glad I had it.

Johns Eyes

Lp results are in...

Well of course it's positive.

It's not really a shock but i wish the diagnosis was something else.

Heal Your Heart with EECP by Dr. Debra Braverman

I am currently reading Heal Your Heart with EECP by Debra Braverman, M.D. This Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) supposedly is "the only noninvasive way to overcome heart disease" and may improve many other conditions--diabetes, congestive heart failure, lupus, peripheral neuropathy and others (though not mentioning MS). Its mechanism is to increase blood flow (by "passive exercise" as the author puts it).

It is painless, noninvasive, and relatively inexpensive (approved by the FDA, Medicare, covered by ...
