    This is a question related to MS. Typically people born further away from the equator, or have a family history from the northern countries seem to be "bothered" by MS. There is a stretch along the Canadian border, called the MS beltway.
    A theroy by Dr. Swank, is that we did not eat enough fruits and veggies, relied on more red meats and dairy. Thus, we are more suceptible to MS. I am Finnish, with a bit of English mixed in.
    Another is lack of sunshine? Thus fish oils and vitamin D are recommended.
    I just knocked off the toughest 7 days of my life, kicking a pain killer addiction that lasted 7 years. I told my Dr to keep me in the game.
    This forum has helped to keep my mind off the pain, so I extend my thanks. While here I learned some good, some bad things.
    Out of financial necessity, I am learning to make changes in my life. I have found, where the real pain exists, is in my own mind, and is usually exagerated. Especially at night.
    Meditation helps, and letting go of the concept that everyone should see things as I do.
    Namaste

    I'm sorry to hear about your illness. Sickness is one of the most terrifying things to think about. I have an extremely powerful family illness in the family but I got kinda lucky - it only goes from mother to daughter, and I'm a guy. Still, I've seen what having chronic illness does to one's life.

    I salute your positive attitude and strength!
