Re: Books that you re-read over and over

Definitely Harry Potter for me :] just brings back so many happy memories. I still remember the anticipation I felt before each book got released. :]

I agree. For additional balance and coordination work, the pt suggested that I dance. I'm going to get the video game Dance Dance Revolution, so that I can be ridiculously silly in private.
LOL DDR brings back some wanky memories :]

Re: Physical or Occupational therapy experiences

I'm ecstatic that this is covered by my insurance. I waited more than a year and was very surprised the referral was finally offered. I really hope that in the future access to rehabilitation for MS will be refunded and widely available. It is very hard o get a physical therapist at least where I l...

Re: Stem Cell Treatment Testimonials

This sure escalated quickly. I wish there was some full proof method of dealing with ms. =/ For now I got my eyes set on rehabilitation. Thank you for your feedback on stem cells guys but I'm pretty sure this is not an option for me.

Re: Stem Cell Treatment Testimonials

I think the school is still out on stem cells. The miraculous statements about patients and stem cells are coming from overseas with no peer review data to back their claims. There are ongoing trials in Europe and US but they will take a couple of years to complete then if their successful then I'l...

Stem Cell Treatment Testimonials

Hey all, I've been exploring various treatment options for ms and recently I stumbled upon stem cell treatment. I watched a lot of testimonials on youtube about miraculous recoveries after the treatment and frankly I cant make up my mind. Are they real? Are they fake? Are they just a few very lucky ...

Re: Rehabilitation

BTW, I've been to physical therapy at our local rehab center pretty much every year since my diagnosis, and have plenty to say about it, but haven't had time to post since I work full time. I can't quite figure out what you're talking about with a month-long MS rehab. Never heard of that. The only ...

Re: Wahls diet discussion

Wahls looks a little too good to be true. But as some of you said it's not just a diet. Hell it's even called a protocol. I for one believe that in order to sucesfuly manage ms we have to take care of it on every step of the way. We have to have the proper diet, the proper meds, the proper excercise...
