About Buddy'sMom

After living with MS for 21 years, when I could no longer work in the corporate world, my husband and I moved to an "active adult" community. The attraction is the fitness centers, the indoor pool, single level buildings and its location, center to three great historical resort areas. Additionally, friends that go back almost 40 years have retired here. We rescued a two year old lab mix in 2009. Second to my husband, Buddy is great support. In June '07 I began using Tysabri, after having used Copaxone. In November I tested positive for the JCV antibody. After a 5 month washout I began taking

Gilenya. After ten months I stopped Gilenya because my blood pressure became uncontrolled and I thought the med was a cause. I am now back on Copaxone and investigating a Baclofen pump.
