Humana Drops Avonex Coverage

Bottom line profits win out over common sense I guess:

I was approached once when I was still walking by a local officer, as I stumbled out of my pickup and into a store to get some lunch.

I looked him square in the eye and said,"Multiple sclerosis" and...

Well done!

I was not panicked or upset, just accepted it and moved on with living, both after M.S. and cancer.

What I try to stress to people is: Do not be defined by your disease or condition!

In everything, moderation!

Drink a cup of green tea, enjoy the health benefits. Slam hundreds or thousands times more, and yes, it makes perfect sense that it can blow up your liver!

I can imagine! Glad it's not latex, and that it's working for you.

The first few weeks living with my colostomy had me constantly worried about leaks, smell etc. Now, I love the thing!

Thanks for that!
I get so tired of going someplace and then finding that my powered wheelchair has no access to it. This may help!

For what it's worth, I've been eating turmeric near daily most of my life. I eat copious amounts of Indian and Asian food stock full of the stuff.

I still got M.S.

For that matter, I also have...
