Everyday Life With MS

Experience Tips Real Life Solutions

Catching Up


lasvegas-216It’s been a while since I’ve last posted.  I was having a hard time functioning before.  Just getting through everyday living was a real challenge.  But now, life is pretty good…no, it’s great! 

I finally determined along with my doctor that I am unable to handle Rebif.  He recommended taking a two week break to get the drug out of my system and then start on Copaxone…again.

Well, my two week break has turned into 4 weeks.  I feel really good, my energy level is back up, I don’t have as much brain fog and my tremors have really subsided.  I am still not who I once was before my initial onset of MS.  I suffer from nerve damage that may never repair itself and I still fatigue very easily.  At least now I have a quality of life I can appreciate. 

I wonder though, how long will my good health last?  Your guess is as good as mine.  I am enjoying everyday, my daughter, my husband and being more active than I was over the summer. 

Questions For My ReadersI know many friends who have MS and don’t treat themselves with any drugs.  I used to think they were nuts…but not anymore based on how I am feeling today.  What about you?  What are your thoughts on drug thereapy or other avenues of therapy.  I would love to hear your feedback with regards to those questions, to treatment options and answers to these questions:

  1. How many of you have have stopped taking drug therapy for MS?
  2. Have you replaced drug therapy with something else?
  3. What are the major drawbacks of not taking a drug therapy?
  4. What holistic approaches have you taken?
  5. What tips do you have for living an active and productive life with MS?

Looking forward to hearing what you have to say.  Until then…

Stay healthy, keep positive and continue living your best life

Diet and Wholistic Healing


It’s been some time since I’ve written last – sorry!  I need to update you on how the new diet is working.  It’s hard making all the changes you need to.  I am doing baby steps.  Cutting things out here and there, getting used to it and then moving on.

The other thing I have been doing is Body Talk.  I am going to a Holistic Healer and it’s working.  Search for someone who practices Body Talk and try it.  There are no medications or anything invasive about it.  So far my numbness, fatigue, brain fog and a multitude of other symptoms have either gone away or dramatically decreased. 

I almost feel NORMAL!!!

I am not one who would actively search out something like holistic healing but I was at my witts end!  I am glad I did!  Let me know if you have questions about it and I will do my best to answer them.  I try not to question what’s happening – I go with it!
