Flu Jab

Just wondering how many of us MSer's have had the anti flu jab and for how long? :?:

The reasons being is that I first started having the flu jab about 11years ago and have had the jab every year through work. I was diagnosed with PPMS in 1995 and I've only just found out that in most of these flu jabs there is a preservative and ...

What to do...?

Hello everyone. My husband has been taking LDN 3.0mg for the past three months. I will admit that he hasn't been overly faithful about taking it every night and he doesn't always take it at the same time. He works from 5pm until 3am and doesn't like to take it until he comes home for bed which can be anywhere from 3:05am until 6:00am. I KNOW that he isn't taking it correctly and therefore not ...

Blood Brain Barrier

Dear all,

Many articles I read make reference to the Blood Brain Barrier. Could somewhere explain (in simple speak) what this is and where it is? I assumed there was blood in the brain.

A novel with some relevance

So here's a novel that might appeal to members of This is MS: John le Carré, The Constant Gardener. Amazon has a snappy review:
British diplomat Justin Quayle, complacent raiser of freesias and doting husband of the stunning, much younger Tessa, has tended his own garden in Nairobi too long. Tessa is Justin's opposite, a fiery reformer, "that rarest thing, a lawyer who believes in justice," whose campaigns have earned her a nickname: "the Princess Diana ...
