Hi, I am 50 years old and was diagnosed in 1993. Disease progressed rapidly as I went from relapse remitting until 1998 and in 2006 went to Secondary Progressive. I have taken mega drugs from cortisone therapies to Mitoxanthrone therapy in 2001 and kept progressing until neurologist decided to try in 2006 a protocol drug therapy called cyclophosmoside chemotherapy. I have since been on this therapy and receive treatment every 16 weeks at the hospital. NO side effects. Nurse comes to take blood tests every 2 weeks. I use a motorized wheelchair and can no longer walk.

Use adapted transportation to leave house every day and try to maintain positive attitude!
