Natalizumab Trial

Posted by Nick , 03 April 2015 · 503 views

Yesterday I very nearly fell asleep in an MRI Machine.  Well it had been a long day and two years into my drugs trail, and after numerous times filling in the same old MRI questionnaire I was apparently getting pretty relaxed about it all.  A long day yesterday, arriving after a car journey at the hospital, just before eight in the...


Natalizumab Trial

Posted by Nick , 15 January 2015 · 612 views

My original two year trial into the use of Natalizumab in SPMS comes to an end very soon and I have just completed my last major session of attendance, completing many of the subsidiary questionnaires, tests and examinations.  Monday was a challenging day for me, arriving at the research department of our local main hospital at 10 in...


Natalizumab Trial

Posted by Nick , 12 December 2014 · 734 views

It's hard to believe that I am now coming to the end of my two year 'Ascend' trial looking into using the drug Natalizumab in Secondary Progressive MS. This has been what is termed a 'double blind', Placebo controlled study which simply means nobody has a clue as to if I am on the real drug or not!   Anyone who is offered a trial...


Brain the size of the Universe

Its been very quiet on the MS People's blog and I suddenly realised that I had posted nothing myself for several months.  

So first have a think about the following statement and then watch the attached...


On Devils and Angels

Dear friend,

It's like this, Imagine me as your computer.  I’m not the latest model I know, in fact I’m rather old. Just lately you may have noticed that it seems to take ages to download all your stuff, and the printer often seems to have a mind of its own.  I’m not much...


Now for something completely different.

I see a few new faces on the forum and lots of 'enthusiastic' posts!  Great Stuff.  
My blog has been a bit abandoned recently which we shall put down to those winter blues.
However I've recently been working on yet another piece of writing on...


It aíint over till the fat lady sings!

Posted by Nick , 31 March 2013 · 500 views

For the first time in ages I have braved the cold and been out! Sunshine took Kay and I to a heathland overlooking the long flat marshes that dominate this part of the world.  The dog enthusiastically managed to lose yet another tennis ball down yet another rabbit hole, while I looked around me, glimpsing the first signs of spring...


The Hunt for the Swallowtail Butterfly

Posted by Nick , 07 December 2012 · 457 views

I regret having rather neglected to post anything recently on the forum’s blogasphere.
All is OK down here in our little seaside town.  The normal Christmas madness is again upon us and this year Kay and I are taking...


A blackbird at dawn

Posted by Nick , 07 September 2012 · 467 views

Babyblues seems to have prompted me into posting on my blog.........a while since I have.

Its quite an adventure this ‘understanding business’, unique and difficult to describe.  Curious then, how each of us struggle to make sense of it all. Each giving differing explanations of our...


A quick 'Virtual' break

Posted by Nick , 27 June 2012 · 525 views

For the first time in quite a while I made it back down to our nearby beach.

Itís just a few streets away from where I live and consists of a half mile wide strip of sand dunes covered in a multitude of small but fascinating plants. Itís high summer...
