    congrats and thanks for sharing – please keep us posted

  2. Done with day 3 of Tecfidera starter dose. No aspirin this morning, nothing much to eat either; just a couple slices of raisin toast. Felt perfectly fine. Went into town, did some shopping, helped a friend look for her cat, and then planted some flowers at home! So far so good!! And NO GASTRIC UPSET OF ANY KIND ♥

    I stayed close by home my first two days in case I had a reaction.

    I’ll start mine next week. I live and work in a small town in Mexico. I think I’ll go to Mexico City to take first dose. I want to be in an area where I can get some help if needed.

    I just eat my usual breakfast – fruit and cereal – and then dinner – nothing special

    What type of foods are you eating before the doses and how much? I don’t want to eat the wrong foods. I mean, I’m obviously not going to eat an Activia yogurt first. You know what I mean?

    Just stumbled upon your blog tonight after finding the facebook page on Oral Tecfidera. Thank you for starting this blog and documenting your journey. I was diagnosed a year ago and have been on Copaxone since my diagnosis. I wish you the best of luck and i hope to read in future posts that BG-12 is working out great for you.
