About Me: Female, 44, Boston, MA, member since Dec 2011
I love language, music, life, and love. I came here to MedHelp when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Every time I stop by I learn more about the disease. This community is tremendously helpful, and I am glad to have found you all!

Oh, it is so nice to see you picture. Yes, it's been a long time for too. I hope I never forget those dark days of MS and wonderful supportive community made up of gorgeous girls like you - as someone famous said it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
I'm coming to the end of a month long holiday and boy did have some fun with wife and 3 kids as we visited my Mum and siblings some 17 hours drive away. It was a huge Christmas with 27 people and I'm seriously going to lobby for catering next time. I had alarms set to go off every 15 minutes to remind me to turn this dish, peel that, turn the turkey etc. Good thing there was alcohol on hand to put in the trifle and some left over to get me through.
I'm still blessed with great health. Alex xoxoxo
Bless you my dear. Hope your studies are nearly done and your enjoying life with that gorgeous husband. I've run away for all things MS because since my brain operation in Oct I have been feeling unbelievably well. I have been totally rescued. Keep warm over in your cold winter, we have the opposite over here, approx 105 or so in your language tomorrow. Alex xo
I thought I replied to you but I see that I did not. :(. I'm so glad you are doing good and copaxone is kicking butt!! I'm on rebif now and it is going well. little flu like symptoms but I do get site reactions. I feel great right now though, really great! I feel like I did before I got Dx! Isn't remission good?? :) I'm still in the same lab, working away on muscle diseases. I'm still really loving it too.
Glad you are doing well lovely, you are never too far from my thoughts :) xxx
