PAMELA - I've spent the past hour looking for your email. I'm trying to reach you about an interview with a neurologist and MS expert. It's no strings - and it's Wednesday. Sorry to post here but I didn't know any other way to reach you. You can just delete if I'm being out of line. At any rate if you're willing to give me the benefit of the doubt, contact me at Your blog is great and I'd be so excited to include you in this - I can send details if you send your email or other means of contact. Thanks
