NABs Caution

The drug companies usually have a tendancy to minimize the concern for NAbs, stating they don't normally effect very many patients. I've also read that some patients on these drugs don't get their NAB levels tested and their docs have never mentioned them.

I know we all have varying levels of ability, MS or not. But I'm here to tell you. Try yoga. Find a DVD that you like and you can do at home if you're not up for a class.

Personally, I always resist yoga because it seems so "inactive." But I've been feeling so tight and tired lately and this morning, just threw on my beginner yoga DVD. After two 20-minute sessions, I'm relaxed and ...

Katman: My adventures in MS

It was suggested by one of our reknowned elders that I record my adventures here. I was reluctant at first because I am very much a newcomer here but then realized that we all have something different to offer For the last few days, I have wandered around and tasted some of the various flavors. I think I like them all.

One of my favorite things in life is to make waves. Now that I ...

then please go visit my ongoing MSRC fund raising site - ...

Anti-biotics - what's the bigger picture


You have been an inspiration to many who use this site. There appears to be a large number of people who are following the anti-biotic regime (either your husband's regime or another similar regime). Many have now been on the regime for a reasonable amount of time (6 months plus and many for more).
