As you all know, I have been battling the MS demon for a couple of years now. I take Avonex injections weekly to help slow the progession, and will probably be switching to a different medication in the next few months, cause my MS isn't slowing down for the Avonex! That's OK, cause at least I still have other meds to help with the fight, so I am still hopeful.
On Oprah Wednesday (it airs today on some channels, and tomorrow on CTV), Dr. Oz and Montel Williams are on the show to talk about what to do after you receive an MS diagnosis. I don't know what the show will be like, but I encourage my friends and family to watch it, if only to get a better understanding of this disease. Montel has MS himself, and has really gone a long way to increase funding for research for MS.
So if you have a little time, sit down with a cup of tea, your kleenex and of course some cake or cookies to watch.
