I have been following your post because my doc suggested tysabri too. I am scared to death of it too. Please don't say that you want to hurt yourself. I am too a mother of a young daughter and i think maybe if you talk to your doctor he can maybe get you something for depression or anxiety. It comes with the territory of having this disease, also with being on the interferons. I too felt these feelings of not wanting to live with this disease, but you know what? It can be alot worse sickly20. Yes this disease sucks, there is no other word for it, but atleast we are going to be here for our children. There are young mothers dying of cancer, etc out there, suffering and trying to survive and loosing the battle everyday, so take this disease and let it make you a stronger person. I hope you find the strength. It is not easy, believe me i know, and so do alot of women and men here on this forum struggling with this monster. I am in the middle of a major flair right now and i am so mad b/c of it, but i'm doing my second round of solumedrol right now and trying to be strong. A few months ago, I was having a real hard time with anger, yelling all the time, not wanting to leave the house, etc and i talked to my doc and he gave me celexa and i feel like a new person. It really does make a difference. Are you on anything like this? Maybe you need to try a different one? Just a thought. I sincerely hope that everything works out for the best for you, i do. Please post and let us knowhow you are doing. By the way there is a web site post on here about
tysabri. It is like, msforchoice.com or something like that . I will try to find it for you. It is alot of patient feedback.
Know you are in my thoughts!
