Howdy!

Wow that was a young age for M.S. to start. I was typical, 42 years old when I got mine.

No Thanks

I eat what I want, when I want, even foods I really shouldn't after losing my colon to cancer.

The key to eating that has worked for me for my entire 60 years, is Everything In Moderation!

It's The Cold

Heat, I can work outside all day in the heat without issue. I love the summer!

Humana Drops Avonex Coverage

Bottom line profits win out over common sense I guess:

Just got a lovely phone call from Humana. It seems that starting in 2019, they will no longer cover the Interferon beta-1a drug Avonex.

Well done!

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