up to 50%

Current Meds:
1. Rebif (50%) X 3 per week
2. Tylonol (With Rebif shot)
3. Citalopram 10mg once daily

Current Symptoms
Physical: very mild tremors, fatigue, stiff legs
Sensory: Optic neuritis in left eye
Psychological (memory/mood): difficulty concentrating
Medication side effect?: Fever/chills, aches and pains, nausea.

Just a note. 50% sucked last night. I don't like being sick. But at least one person was able to restore my "faith" in humanity this morning. A lot of bad things happened last night and they've left me feeling rather exposed and unsure about much. So many uncertainties. And I'm running on very little sleep.

Citalopram failing... what the hell is going on in my head???

Uh oh... someone needs a hug. ;)

Anyway, there's no amount of chocolate in the world...

Doug:
You are strong and brave and you are dealing with all this remarkably well. Since there is only one YOU, do not compare yourself to others in terms of where you are, what you are feeling, or what you think you should be doing. Be gentle with yourself. Give yourself time and love and peace. Remember to drop by anytime...the orange chair is yours if you need it! Peace, Celeste

Doug,
You've shown through this site to have had so many more positive than negative days...even in your difficult times I can see optimism shining through. Sometimes when I'm stressed I think about how strong you are being and realize that I can learn from your example. I look up to you, never forget that. AND, I strongly recommend you take celeste up on her orange chair offer....I sat in it many times...my energy is engrained in it :) Here's a long distance hug *hug*...
