Latest MRI and general update

Great health news. My latest MRI came back and I have no new lesions and the ones on my left side are smaller. I guess something is working for me. Since I'm not sure what, I'll just stick with my new routine. I will continue with Copaxone. I will also stick with the diet I have been following since September. I now eat meat again but do not eat gluten or soy and I watch my dairy intake. Rest is a priority and I continue to get regular excercise with my yoga teaching and practice. Lately I have also been taking some vitamin D and a multi-vitamin but that is a new thing.

My summer has been pretty mellow but I have been teaching a ton of yoga. I am also still trying to sell my house. Yesterday we entered a new chapter of this process. I met with my ex and real estate team to start working toward a short sale. I am hoping the process goes smoothly and resolves in a timely matter. The whole sale thing has been stressful physically and financially and I am ready to wrap it up. I had intended to move and get a place with a friend but my ex wants us to keep paying for the house so I think my friend is going to move in. This is something I am looking forward to. Today I am grateful for the positive results of my MRI.

Good news indeed.

I am currently going through a relaspse, and just had a 3 day course of IV steroids. They always get be back on my feet.

Keep positive, selling and moving is so stressful.

That's awesome news! Could I ask you why you started on a gluten free/low dairy diet to start with? Someone else mentioned this recently and I am very curious! Thanks,

Debbie, many people with auto-immune disorders are also gluten-intolerant. I actually had the genetic and blood tests and it was recommended I stay away from gluten, soy and dairy. I still do dairy but in smaller amounts since my tests did not indicate an actual allergy. I am also allergic to yeast, tuna, garlic and most beans. I pay attention to some of it and some of it I ignore, but cutting out the soy and gluten seemed important. I am not sure if that is why my health has improved but why mess with success?
