Update 6/3

Dropped Zoloft after two weeks. Caused bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction.
Already elaborated on the issues. Took a few days after stopping for things to return to 'normal'.
I will refuse any antidepressants from here on since they all carry some fucked up side effect. Every one of them have caused one issue or another. My body/mind do not interact well with those types of drugs.

I have just over a full week on Ticfidera/BG-12. So far so good. Only slight flushing and stomach issues.
My doctor started me on his own titration schedule. Two weeks 120mg once a day. Two weeks 120mg twice a day. Then the normal 240mg twice a day. The official schedule is 120mg twice a day for seven days then bumped to 240mg twice a day.
Time will tell if this can stop the progression.

Two weeks now after Acthar and no improvement in my blurry eye.
Reported it to my doctor and that was the last thing we could try. We simply have to wait this one out and hope the inflammation goes away sooner than later. My first bout with Optic-neuritis lasted over 5 months and eventually cleared up on its own.

Still very depressed. Hating life, work, ms, etc...Wasting away, really need a change.
I think a dog is due. The timing has never seemed right and bullshit continues to happen that eats away extra funds, but that's the way its always been and I always sustain.
Its been about 18 months since she died, I miss her.


  1. I am glad that things have returned to 'normal' and I hope that a new dog (if you get one) brings you solace.

  2. "Normal" is not good for you.....I hope you will get a dog! Soon!
