FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions.

Q:  Are you 100% symptom free?

A: Yes.

 

Q: Why did you stop taking copaxone?

A: I stopped taking copaxone because of the indents and bruising it left on my body where I injected myself.  I also stopped copaxone because I was “weirded” out by the whole medicine thing, felt depressed, and wasn’t acting like myself.  Nutrition has 0 side effects, copaxone had too many to count.

 

Q: Is your boyfriend vegan?

A: Mostly plant based, but still not entirely.

A: On and off for 10 years.  When I say off, I mean consuming low amounts of cheese or eggs.  I’ve been a strict vegan for the past 2 years.

 

Q: Do you wear animal products?

A: No and yes.  I won’t buy products anymore that use leather/fur/etc. but I still have some articles in my closet that aren’t 100% vegan.

 

Q: How often do you do yoga?

A: Depends on the week. Sometimes I’ll practice 5 days a week and sometimes 0.  Just depends on my mood and what type of workouts i’m currently into.

 

Q: How does Peter deal with your MS?

A: Well, he doesn’t really have to deal with anything because I have no symptoms.  But, he understands the risk with being with someone that has MS…and I guess I was worth the risk!
