About Me: Female, 66, Tacoma, WA, member since Sep 2008
I live in Washington State with my husband and cat, Pippi. We have six grandchildren and three sons. I was first "sort of" diagnosed with MS when I was 29 years old and had one relapse when I was 33 and the most recent in April 2010.
You deserve a big bear hug! I know Tysabri has a lot of scary associations, and believe me, I still have a lot of trepidation over this. But in so many cases, the benefits outweigh the risks. The cool part? you don't have to self inject any more! You sit in a comfy chair or bed, read your book or listen to your favorite tunes for the hour the infusion takes, and the additional hour the staff monitors you. The only after-effects I feel is fatigue the next day, and that's certainly no worse than one of my more "tired" days. Good luck to you - wishing you more relapse/progression free times.
Just a quick note to say hi!
here's a link to young lady that is one the med your talking about, she has posted many videos on youtube
hope this helps
I am so sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well, Granny. Bronchitis can be so awful with all that hacking and coughing. Please get as much rest as you can, eat some chicken noodle soup and take in plenty of fluids. As you already know, the more fluids you take in, the more the congestion will break up. Take care of yourself, dearheart and hope you feel better soon. Big Hugs,
