And another MRI!!

Man I am starting to fear walking into my kitchen because I am scared the utensils will start flying at me! This is MRI #6 since October. This time it was to look at my optic nerves and my brain. Doctor is concerned now about the ON which is of course going away now that I have stopped the Copaxone. I feel like me again!

The neuro wants me to start Rebif.... I am having a really hard time with this decision. I am feeling so much better now that I have stopped all of the meds and now she wants me to start another one which has had nothing but poor results to go along with the negative side effects. And the side effects are astounding! I really don't think I want to put my body through all that for something that has a 35% success rate. If they printed that it has a 65% failure rate nobody in their right mind would try it.

So I am looking into more holistic approaches to this disease. You see before I had MS I was able to treat any illness or insomnia or ache with a simple tea therapy. The only time I ever went to the doctor was when I had strep throat. It's the only thing I couldn't cure on my own. Even the majority of my pregnancy was treated herbally.

I don't know. I ramble. But there has to be a better option.
