Frequently Asked Questions.
Q: Are you 100% symptom free?
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.
Q: When was your mother diagnosed with MS?
A: 1992. Symptom free until about 2000.

Q: How long have you been a vegan?
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: 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!
