Living for a Cure
I have multiple sclerosis, MS, as well as fibromyalgia, lymphedema and various other diagnoses (DXes). Three months ago, I got together with Tammy Mailhot and started a private support group on Facebook (fb) for people with any or all of these chronic ailments. It's called Living for a Cure. Now, we have over 200 members. Every day, we try to find solutions to help each other. Everything passes in the fb chat so quickly, that we need a place that's more easily searched to keep track of the best of what we are learning. That's what this blog is for. I'll be slowly adding to this each day. Please remember that what we try or suggest are just ideas coming from others who have the same or similar DX as you or someone you love. We are not doctors, although we feel like we have to know more than our docs most of the time. Take our ideas and research them yourself. Talk to the medical professionals whom you trust. Ask questions. Hopefully, feel better!
