About a week late ... but yesterday morning I started pulse 50. It is a metronidazole pulse, this time at the correct dosage (here in the UK, that is 3x400 mg per day). My last pulse was really the first metronidazole pulse and I inadvertently used half dose. Although I have been doing antibiotics for some years now, I shall remain mindful of our editor's recent advice to me, now that I have switched to metro; I shall remain cautious.I have just spoken of remaining cautious ... I should also try to remain hopeful too. Any novelty value in being disabled has long since worn off. There are barriers to nearly everything; whether that be booking a holiday or even just eating out.I haven't been taking any biotin for about 9 months. I shall take Sarah's advice and start biotin again. I'll place an order this very week with Bulk Supplements.G.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Excellent decision SG. 

i, also, started my pulse yesterday, although not yet at 50 ... or, even, double figures! Yes, disability does become boring, so, for light relief, i’ve been known to use MS to guilt trip people, although, it only works when the recipient of my faux indignation doesn’t know me well and is horrified, by their lack of sensitivity! We must get our laughs wherever we can!
