Getting started on DMD

I wish I had found this site - better still been pointed to it by our MS Nurse - before I started autoinjecting Betaferon/Betaseron three months ago!
Much of the content is UK specific but there's some worth while general stuff too - like video clips of people self-injecting, a decision chart to help you choose a med (or like me, post choice, confirm it was right :) ...

You know it might be interesting for people to document their efforts at physical therapy (physio in UK I think).
