  • Has anyone heard from Jim?

    Jim hasn't posted since he got the results of his MRI, and I was wondering if anyone has heard from him. I am bit concerned by the silence. Jim, if you are out there, please let us know what happened.

            People pop in and out of the message board when they need support, information and when they feel they want to help others. In many cases they find a comfort zone and stay away for a while, then make return visits when they need or want to.

            Jim tends to post several times daily so his sudden silence after saying he is off for an MRI has some concerned - I do hope we hear from him soon.

            One thing is for sure - this is a VERY active board and it is always good to see new AND old friends when I log on!

            Best wishes to all,

                  Hey Everybody,

                  I was referred to a neurologist to interpret the MRI results and just didn't want to post until i knew anything for sure, which i don't yet. There were no apparent lesions on my brain indicative of MS, but there is fraying (demyelination?) of the optic nerves. Also, i started back to school this week, i'm trying to schedule this second sinus surgery, and all this medical stuff is starting to wear on me so much, i really want it all to go away. I just needed some time to myself. Sorry if i scared anybody.

                      Jim - I am relieved to hear from you. I can relate to just wanting to have it all just go away...I can't tell you how many times I just wished I could close my eyes and make it all disappear. Anyway, I am glad to hear you aren't in any of the terrible situations that my imagination took me to. I continue to cross my fingers for your future good health, and hey, look at the bright side...look how many people here were worried about you! We are continuing to disprove your theory that you don't have any friends!

                      Take care,
