Is Their Anyone That Lives In Or Has Lived In Bethel, Alaska? 

Is Their Anyone That Lives In Or Has Lived In Bethel, Alaska? 

I was diagnosed three years ago, and have been on Copaxone, and have had very few symptoms since. I have a dream job opportunity in Bethel, but I am concerned with the ability to get my Copaxone, and traveling to Anchorage for annual appointments, and handling a relapse. Does anyone have any insight?

In Your First Year Of Dx, Did You Lose Intrest In The Holidays And Your Birthday?

Tomorrow is my first birthday since dx, and I just don't have the excitement I usually do about it. My birthday is always my favorite day of the year. But becuase i cant celebrate how i like to, it makes it difficult to be excited about it. Plus covid has put a damper on celebrations this year
