I'm new here...but not to MS!


Hello there. I am Cheryl, a 54 year old married woman living with MS since 2009. I love dogs and wish I had more than my 2. A 12 year old border collie mix and a 2 year old lord only knows what mix! I don't know what's in her for breeds but I love her just the same.

I am in my second year, including 6 months with nothing, of treatment with Tysabri. I have many problems and issues but I won't go into them here.

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome. The 2 yr old is a Heinz 57. I hava an 8yr old Old English Bulldog and a 3 yr old Yorkshire Terrier. They're inseparable. I was on Tysabri for 3 yrs. Now I'm on Ocrevus. I loved the TY.

May I ask why you went off the Tysabri?

You know how you get 3 really good weeks out of each Tysabri infusion. I was down to only getting about one decent week.

Aha. I am just starting to keep track of that. Thanks.

How long have you been on Tysabri?

Yes 1.5 years sounds right. I am up for corresponding with you. How did you do the private thing?

Did you get my message about how to reply.

Hi and Welcome!!! 😊❤🌷

Hi, we have lots of dog/ cat lovers on here, so please post a picture of your 2 furry friends, maybe we could have a go at guessing what breed your dog is. Welcome and feel at home, blessings Jimeka 🦋 🍫
