New study challenges controversial multiple sclerosis treatment

Interesting... a meta-study soon to come out will say that there are no studies that have been appropriately undertaken that can attest to the efficacy or otherwise of CCSVI treatment for MS symptoms.... yet this neurologist KNOWS that this one study (which may or may not have been appropriately done) absolutely PROVES that the treatment is useless: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/health/new-study-challenges-controversial-multiple-sclerosis-treatment/article4490423/. What a scientist! And here I am, 27 months into my placebo effect... I think we should wait for some real, valid research before we pass judgement.

Back from Vacation

Wow, it's been over three weeks since I posted anything... our vacation at the cottage was GREAT and I'm still catching up on things at home.  It's good to be alive and, despite my deteriorating mobility, generally well enough to enjoy life.
