Gwa I think you need to back off from MrsGeorge, who has been through a lot recently, I also thought your post was rather insensitive about such a sensitive topic. Sometimes Gwa cold hard logic can be, well, cold and hard, eh? You are right. I apologize to MrsG. Didn't mean to be insensitive. gwa

So many women have been misdiagnosed as anxious or hysterical for eons, so better diagnosis and less incorrect assumptions by physicians may also play a role here.

I think I willl probably thank the MS society profusely for teh day - because it was good. But I think I will let them know what was said because it was a bit unscrupulous I think.... This would be the best way to handle the situation. The MS Society needs to know what went on and they can make a d...

Practitioners of complimentary medicine use a different part of their brain than most of us. I guess you got a lesson in it and can take from it what you want (or leave the advice behind). I would not complain about them, but would remember the enjoyment I got from the day sans the advice. They were...

AC, The BPA and high fructose corn syrup in foods may be the main culprits for the obesity epidemic in western countries. What a mess that such food additions are allowed and that groups such as yours have to fight to get them out of our food sources. Now you need to get on a committee to keep Chine...

arti,

I don't mind your disagreeing with me. If you go over MrsG's posts, she has discussed a lot of problems she is facing lately, not just financial issues, and having a baby is difficult in the best of times.

It is much easier to cope with parenthood when the conditions are less stressful.

MrsG, Being the old fuddy duddy on the board, I have some thoughts for you. Have you considered the cost of nappies, clothes, furniture and food for a new person in your house? I was curious because you have indicated money is tight and some young people don't think about all of the costs (like nann...

shortcake, Rebif is not designed to make you better or stop a relapse. It supposedly helps you to have less frequent relapses, not NO relapses. My first symptoms were optic neuritis and hands that went in all sorts of directions that I could not control. Those two things disappeared totally within a...

I went to see my neuro at day 9 of prednisone and although she could see how good I was feeling and how up I was she made sure I understood that this was not helping my ms at all other than dramatically reducing my spasticity which brings on the good feeling I was experiencing. She said she only gi...
