MS: You make me wanna “Sweat Like A Girl”!

A few weeks ago, I went to a very nice dinner hosted by Gilenya at “The Marble Head Chowder House”. A Neurologist and MS Specialist spoke for a short time about MS and then for an even shorter time about one of the new disease modifying therapies, Gilenya. It’s a pill that has pretty much the same efficacy as all the others pills, however it’s one pill a day, not two.

For half of a second my interest was peaked, and then they mentioned its heart concerns and the special care that must be given when first taking the drug.

Hmmmm, maybe not :/

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Sure my Tecfidera is twice a day but I’ve had zero side effects and if I did, heart health would not be one of them.

I did however, meet some really nice people. There were sisters who both have MS; talk about partners in crime. Another woman who brought her 2 siblings so that they could have a better understanding of the disease; I can’t take ALL of my siblings anywhere all at once, it’s too embarrassing. There was one other woman who like me, brought her husband. That couple talked a lot about Hippotherapy which I found fascinating. They convinced me that it was beneficial! I wish I could convince my Insurance Carrier of that.

All in all we had a great night! I think we should get together again and have a mini support group. Next time we should meet somewhere more exciting…I dont know, maybe for a class at “Sweat Like A Girl”. It looks like fun. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

  2. We do *not* sweat! We glow…in a nice dewy sorta way. With a delicate and pleasing aroma that tickles the pallete.

    Men sweat and have stinky feet. Especially the teenage and and over 20 ones.

    WE, however, are Ladies! Made of sugar and spice, and all things nice.
