 I am new here, so hello everyone. I have had ms since 2003, well, that was when I had ON in both eyes, the first symptom I couldn't blow off!
 I have been on Copaxone since last May. Brain lesion still getting larger.
 Question, in the last month I havehad an abcessed tooth, an upper respiratory infection, AND a kidney infection! (BAAAAAD month!)shakehead Is it only a matter of time before I have a major flare from all of this?

Wow!  You have had a rough month.  Unfortunately, MS flares can be kicked off by just about anything.  I broke my finger last year and had a minor flare just from that.  A bout with bronchitis and near pneumonia last fall also resulted in a flare.  When your body is under unusual amounts of stress you just have to make a conscious effort to slow down and get some extra rest.  That's the best way to avoid pushing a minor flare into a major one.  I hope you are able to get some rest and avoid that major flare.

The Haflinger is a breed of the horse that I am the proud owner of. They are a small draft horse, they look like a small belgain draft. Daisy is the love of my life.

THanks for the information. I had no idea if it was animal, mineral, vegetable, or something to eat. Great name - Daisy. She sure is lucky to have you. Do you keep her at home or board her.

  I keep Daisy at a dairy farm up the road from me, the farmer has two teams of draft horses, and hisgrand daughter is a gifted young horsewoman. Unfortunately, her beautiful old quarter horse died ofcolic last fall. Daisy was her stable mate, and was a mess over losing her friend. We went to an Amish horse auction yesterday, and I am happy to say Rachel is the elated new owner of a 3 yr. old belgain, morgan cross.Rachel happy, Daisy happy!
