She cried, so I went to my car and cried to



http://all-hat-no-cattle.blogspot.com/2020/03/drtrump-i-dont-believe-you-really-need.html

This is how I think of DU in our times of trouble. We watch each others backs. Love them, hug them and check on them. I have no clue who will be standing when all is said and done. No clue if I will be or my 94 year old mom that we have home cared for the last two years will be. Hold on dearly and love one another. We are in an unsafe place. However we have each other for a time. Time these days is precious.




And...



Hugs to all.

2. Breaks my heart to think of old folks (just like me)

stuck in place without being able to have family visitors to cheer them up. They must be so afraid.

4. We, my family, are in that position.

Our mom is in her 90s, afraid and alone because we can't go see her. My sisters do face time with her when she can get an attendant to help her. It's not going to end well as we anticipate that she will be infected eventually and that will kill her. And none of us can be with her when that happens.

I cry with you too! :

Getting low on items and cannot go out and no help of course.

I rather be gone that live like this! It simply is not worth it and not-sustainable for any great length of time.

Give your mom a if you are able to do so!

5. It is my sister, mom and me.

I moved into moms apartment over the garage, she is in my sisters house. We are doing the best to keep her safe. Cancelled all the hospice care last week along with a caregiver. They were only a few hours a week, yet bathed her. Now it is all on us.

Good part. She is fully aware, just weak and, yes dying. After all these years I am finally able to flip Donnie the finger and say FU without getting my mouth washed out. Lol!

Can you order groceries in? A pick up? We are doing that now. It is the local market, not one I shop at. Double what I usually pay but buy some things. Enough to get by for a bit.

Hugs and please stay well.

6. I am so sorry you are stuck in this mess.

Is there no one who could pick up groceries for you? We are staying home for the most part, but we do make quick trips out for groceries and meds.

24. No I don't have anyone

My husband is 83+ and high risk as well.

He is not going out either.

As it now stands we are on our own; no help for the disabled or the elderly (I am both). If we were broke, we might find help.

The only thing I have going for me is that I never messed around with the MS drugs which alter/suppress the immune system which I have never fooled with, as many of them have a Black Box warning on them and no, you cannot just stop using them as the highly corrupt Multiple Sclerosis Society is just now stating!

My god, what about those with MS that are using these drugs? Will they all die having an immune system that has been altered/suppressed? Why did they not tell persons with MS this fact, other than tell you that you simply must use these drugs which may or may not do a thing to help or kill you and cost thousands of dollars a month? I think we know that answer don't we?

Many of these drugs lack efficacy and studies are too often statistically flawed, hence the ominous Black Box warning. This lets the drug companies off the hook, that is the reality of this.

The other thing I (and others with an rh factor) may have going for me is a rare blood type, a blood type that seems to be perhaps protective against the flu and other viruses (B rh-) for some reason. Otherwise, those with an rh factor tend to be a sickly lot. An rh factor means you have an extra layer of protein that surrounds the red blood cells. It is aka "The Celtic Curse" because bearing children can be deadly event.

RhoGam is an injection made up of antibodies called immunoglobulin, that help protect a fetus from its mother's antibodies. "RhoGAM prevents the Rh-negative mother from making antibodies during her pregnancy and this is administered to women bearing a child (or even after an abortion).

28. Hello, I'm taking Mayzent, 56 YO, female

Diagnosed 2014 at 50 yo. Iím just getting worse. Multiple Sclerosis has been around too long there has to be a cure. I believe there is and itís all hush hush. Too much $$ to be made for a cure. A cure means patients lost.

I was taking Gilenya first then stopped to start Ocrevus which I completely hated (infusion). I had bad progression from stopping G, like rebound. After Ocrevus fiasco now I take Mayzent/Siponimod which I wanted and had to wait for drug approval. Itís all such guessing game and the doctors donít know as itís all new stuff. We are all tested on. Itís like we are given stuff to hook us so we canít stop. Treat the CAUSE not the SYMPTOMS. Iím worried about the virus killing me with ms. Then I think it might be best better off. Itís not even mentioned as a risk anywhere. Still I do all I can to not get Coronavirus. Thanks for reading my vent! We all need safe hugs.

30. My husband has been on Tysobry for nearly 15 years

During that time he has had multiple MRIs which show no progression of the disease. And his brain is a mess, with cerebral atrophy, multiple plaques, black holes etc. He has secondary progressive MS, which was upgraded to relapsing remitting because of the lack of advancement. Itís been over the last year or so his mobility has begun to falter, and only the last month or so concerning memory issues appeared.

Tysobry eventually kills, so it needs to be closely monitored. My husband is very high risk for PML right now. If he gets the covid-19 virus, it could kill him.

Before the pandemic, we were going to switch his MS medication. Going without is not an option in his case. It never was, given his disease progression. He still drives and functions well. Heís only 62.

I donít believe the MS society is ďhighly corruptĒ but I also donít pay much attention to them. Rather, I listen to his neurologist, who specializes in MS and is well respected.

10. It is all we can do for now.

DU is my cyber family. I can't get the virus from any of you. We have to steer clear of family to protect mom. Sis and I are in the vulnerable category as well, we are in our late sixties.

My niece is caring for virus victims in CCU and I cannot even see her.

14. I have a friend who's married to a nurse ...

I have an N99 mask still in its package with 8 filters.
I gave to my friend to give to his wife.
I figured that she needed it more than I did.
Iíll get another one later.

I know how you felt

Another guy at work went to Mexico and brought back about 2000 N95 masks.
We canít get them here, we have to go to Mexico to get them.
And we have the best health care in the world, my a$$ !
