Then I try to read what the neuros are reading and I can't figure out what they are saying, that is if I can get into their websites.
Anyone have any books, websites, that aren't written for village idiots?
I've already been through everything published by the nat ms society. Like I said...its the same stuff over and over.
I'm a big why person...why is this stuff happening???????? what exactly is going on in there??????? what cures are on the horizon that aren't junk science????
Eventually you'll better understand the big words. At the same time you'll increasingly realize that it doesn't matter what the big words mean because the researchers don't understand MS. Their use of the big words only gives them a chance to put their college education to some use.
I think anyone's MS education should begin with an understanding of the history of MS, allergies, asthma and "autoimmune"/inflammatory diseases in general. I just typed "history of multiple sclerosis" into google and tons of interesting information came up and there are also multiple histories that you can buy or borrow from the library. A book that I and lyndacarol like is "Multiple Sclerosis: The History of a Disease" by Jock Murray, and it's available online if you can finagle "netlibrary" access through your state library...local college, etc??
With time, you'll notice that more and more peer review articles are becoming available to the people the information is drawn from and will impact
Boy do I know where you are coming from! Just trying to comprehend some of this stuff gives me a headache. I am a who, what, when, where, why and how person too.
I purchased a book last year in Barnes and Noble (I think) and it was not very hard to read and understand. It may be too simple for you, depending on how much research you do. It is: Multiple Sclerosis, Everything You Need to Know, Revised Edition. It explains a lot of stuff without being "out there" or to "big wordy". It helped me kind of get a grasp of MS.
I am sure you can get it at the local library or order from Amazon.
Good luck reading.
