Re: Scooters-help!!!!!!

I am 5'5" and I tested my scooter this weekend for you. I have a Pride Celebrity X and it has an adjustable seat and steering. I moved the seat all the way back and I had plenty of room to sit with my leg extended straight out. There isn't a very wide place for your foot next to the steering but my ...

I didn't really mean "how to get a wheelchair" as in where to purchase one, but I meant more how those of you who have them brought it up with your doctors. Thank you! I did not ask any doctor about purchasing the s...

Re: rebif for me

I was diagnosed at the end of February @ age 46 of this year. I started Rebif on April 14. At first I felt like I had the flu after every shot. I would feel feverish, shakey and hurt worse. I found the best time for me to do my injections is at bedtime and I take Aleve about 1/2 before my shot and t...
