Still fighting after all these years!

It's been a really long time since I posted on my blog, so a quick update.

I switched from Copaxone injections last May, 2013.  I've been taking the oral medication, Tefidera ever since.

It's pretty good for the MS, but I have issues with the flushing.  I think I get the flushing more than "they" expected it to last.

I've had a cold for the last two weeks, not kidding, that I'm still fighting and makes me fatigued to a point - but fatigue is completely different then it used to be before I started the Tefidera!

My kids are growing fast!  My BFF will be here soon!  My family is still my greatest support and we're gearing up for Walk MS 2014.

I started a Booster Campaign to not just raise money for our walk this year, but to raise awareness of MS.

If you'd like to purchase a shirt - please go here: https://www.booster.com/walkmspamelasteam2014

Then wear the shirt to help raise awareness!!

I hope all is doing well.
Oh - one more thing... please don't leave comments about Lyme Disease on this blog.  Don't you think after having multiple MRIs, spinal tap, blood draws, and other tests that the best Neurologist in my area would know whether I have lyme disease or MS?  Lyme Disease doesn't leave lesions on your brain or spinal column.  Please comment responsibly.

Hi Pamela,

Healthline just launched a video campaign for MS called "You've Got This" where individuals living with MS can record a short video to give hope and inspiration those recently diagnosed with MS.

You can visit the homepage and check out videos from the campaign here: http://www.healthline.com/health/multiple-sclerosis/youve-got-this

We will be donating $10 for every submitted campaign to the National MS Society, so the more exposure the campaign gets the more the videos we'll receive and the more Healthline can donate to MS research, support groups, treatment programs, and more.

We would appreciate if you could help spread the word about this by sharing the You've Got This with friends and followers or include the campaign as a resource on your page: http://lookingforwardwithms.blogspot.com/

Please let me know if this is possible and if you have any questions. And, if you know anyone that would be interested in submitting a video, please encourage them to do so.

Best,
Maggie Danhakl • Assistant Marketing Manager

Hello. I am currently looking for someone with MS to share their medical reports with me. I am a phd student working on my thesis. I am willing to pay 300 dollars for medical reports. (patients name and identifiable information will be erased.) I hope you are interested. Please email at krista7707 at Hotmail dot com.
