Hi All,

I guess it has been a while since I posted on my FTY720 journey and in a few weeks I will be going for my one-year evaluation. A lot has happened in the past year, some of it I can be thankful for and some I am not sure what to make of it. Of course I do not know whether I am on the drug or the placebo, but I have had several flare-ups this past year, some sort of severe in that it took a few days before I was able to walk again. Fatigue seems worse at times also. I have developed depression and am on Effexor which seems to usually keep me normal (hmmm) and I developed bladder issues and Flomax does a great job there. On the positive side, I still work in a very stressful career and I still workout at the gym, though not as much as I used to. Career and children seem to play more into that than the MS (I think). All-in-all though I think I am doing quite well the majority of the time.

I don't know if anyone else on here is in the FTY720 study, but if you are, I'd like to hear your thoughts and what is going on. Do take care all and one of these days we will win this battle.
