Well I got the call from my neuro today, she spoke with a neuro at Baptist Medical Center and he concurred my MS is moving at a very quick rate and they want to shut the process down, so I am going for a dose of chemotherapy on Friday. Hopefully it is just one dose and it will shut it down so I can start on Copaxone and move on. They are afraid I will lose eyesight if they wait for the Copaxone to start working, I guess it takes three months to really get kicking. I'm a little freaked and my boyfriend went and got a daytime job today, so I can stay home with the kids. I still have to work this out with work though. It feels like too much and I can say I survived my first real breakdown about it all today. Well any prayers, thoughts, etc. would be appreciated and I'll keep you up to date. Thank you to all of you for being here for me because it does help to have people that understand what you are going through.

I'm interested to know how others...
