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.

Avonex in Canada

I'm lucky enough to be able to work, which I cherish! I've noticed that a lot of people with MS cannot work, and I'm not looking forward to my turn. 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 ...

Nostalgic reminiscions of a man I used to know.

I once knew a man who was fun to be around. He was happy, motivated and funny. He had a passion for life that was unbelievable. He was full of hope and dreams, plans for the future with family and kids. He would make strangers smile for no reason. He had a vigor for life, a passion for sports and outdoors, and an enchantment with where his life was now and where it would take ...

Should I get a TB test?

I'm calling my neurologist tomorrow but I'm sort of curious right now. My neuro told me not to get immunizations if they were live viruses or something(I sort of forget, should have wrote it down) but now with a job I'm getting with a school district I need to get a TB test and I was wondering if that would be a bad thing as well. Does anyone know?(Disclaimer: I'm still asking my neuro, just ...
