My Story 2 Appreciate this

I figure it is time to update given I've been diagnosed for two years and I am on my third DMT medicine. I was diagnosed in 2016 and put on Copaxone. All things were fine for about 18 months until new recent activity was found in my brain on the MRI. So long Copaxone, hello Gilenya. Six months on Gilenya and at the next MRI a new lesion was found on my C-Spine. So long Gilenya, hello Tysabri. I've only had one infusion so far, and my neuro wants a MRI in November to establish baseline. Unfortunately my MS has prematurely forced me out of my town's volunteer fire department. Damned disease. I have been in emergency response services for nearly 12 years, both in law enforcement and fire department. Those days are now gone. I might be around here a bit more often. At least I hope to. Life is currently in fast forward with looking to move, so if I'm not around for a bit (again) I hope to be once things settle down. Keep strong my brothers and sisters. Fight as hard as you can for as long as you can to prevent your MS from taking control prematurely. We're all in this together.
