Re: Newly 24 year old Diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS

So, we should eat dinner at least couple hours before bedtime (i don't remember how many hours, i should find the book first). I've already had sto...

Re: Misdiagnosis

Yes, doctor is not God, but i'm afraid there's many doctors out there who play as God because of their knowledge. But i believe there's still many good doctors out there too, we just have to look for one. A doctor who will tell us the truth about the meds (side effects), the one who has an open mind...

If u want to have an oxygen therapy, why don't u use the hyperbaric chamber ? (if i'm not mistaken it is used for oxygenous therapy) or doing the breathing exercise (e.g. deep breathing, tai chi).

Re: Annette Funicello passes away :(

I believe that she gave her husband a lot of joy even in the very end just as a helpless infant or profoundly mentally/physically disabled child gives great joy to a parent. As to what Annette was feeling, we will never know. Maybe she enjoyed the simple comforts given to her by her husband more th...
