Does this ever happen to you?

Sometimes I just feel like I can't wake up. I have to force myself to open my eyes! Has anyone else ever experienced this? 8O

Thanks, Vicki (newbie)

The Letter

What about a letter that expresses all our concerns and our need for more in the way of treatments and the research findings we need to get our lives back. This would be a world wide partition with who knows how many signatures to express the feelings of people with ms. We could have a collaborative effort to design a cover letter of what we need to say and let this letter take its course ...

For gibbledygook

Rebif on Hold?


Appreciate the forum. Very informative. I'm legal guardian for my mentally challenged brother who is 4 years into his MS diagnosis.

Wondering if anyone has gone off Rebif cold turkey. Neuro has Tysabri infusion scheduled but wants my brother off Rebif for 30 days prior. Anything we need to watch for?

Again, thanks for so much information, much of it gleaned the hard way.

Fatigue – When am I going to learn!

Just me grumbling again.

I moved some stuff around yesterday. Nothing big or anything, and I went real slow. Today I’m really ill with fatigue. It’s days like this that scare me. I tell myself it’s OK to do this now and then. I want to stay as active as I can to retain some stamina but the price is getting high. I’ll probably be down for a couple of days now. Maybe I’ll catch ...
