    Hi there everyone

    As some of you may have noticed I have been absent from the FC form for almost a month. My wife and I are both medical card holders in our stay with serious conditions. However last months my wife's condition took a turn for the worst. After a month-long migraine she lost vision in her left eye 100% in a matter of five days.

    After an MRI at some more tests she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Her exasperation is still here and after six days of high-dose steroid intravenous therapy she still struggling to see.

    She has to see a cardiologist have her heart contact to go on a heavy MS blocker name Gilenya.

    Her cannabis use has tripled since the onset as it makes her feel normal. Any support information would be greatly appreciated from this community. This is been the hardest for us as I am in love with my wife after being with her for 15 years.

    Thanks in advance I hope everybody has a very happy Independence Day here in the USA and enjoy your day elsewhere be safe and have fun.

    @Captain Comply, I was diagnosed with MS about 10 years ago. I resolved not to do any drugs but simply to adhere to a low-fat vegetarian diet. I haven't completely followed my own rules about the diet, but I definitely have stayed off the drugs (and have not had any episodes since the initial ones). I highly recommend that you check out Dr. Roy Swank's research on MS and lowfat diets. Dr. John McDougall has a nice website, too, which carries on some of Dr. Swank's work (he passed away in 2008). In fact, I believe Dr. McDougall is looking for volunteers for his on-going research projects.
