Thank you, Art!

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for filling me in on George Peabody's web site. He is undoubtedly one of the nicest men I have ever met, and he has managed to put me in touch with other parents of teens with MS, so with your help, I finally found what I was looking for!

Thanks again!

Long-Term Care Insurance

Though I am still ambulatory, I do have PPMS and cannot ignore what the future might hold.

Taking a break from LDN

I have been taking LDN for almost 4 months without a break.

Can someone advise on the effects of stopping LDN for a short term.

There seems to be mixed opinions on dependancy and effect after continous usage. Has anyone got any thoughts on this?
