Hope

Just curious…does anyone believe there will ever be a cure for ms. A cure in terms of something that may reverse the effects of this vile condition. I grow tired of seeing “in 10-15 years” for something that may be of real help. Am I the only person who is sceptical of real help?

Nah, I dont think itll happen in my lifetime. Maybe someday, but not for a good while…at least not in the 10-15 years you mention.

Meanwhile, i`m not hanging around wishing and waiting…make the most of the better days and rest more on the awful ones.

Life`s too short etc…

Yes, I have hope there will be a cure, especially coming out of the MS Society’s Cambridge Centre for Myelin repair - details eslewhere on the website. thee is loads of work going on in various centres around the world into myelin regeneration, not just in the UK. I realise this may be wildly optimisitic but that is my point of view, realistic or not!

Well - l am still hopeful - even after 30yrs - lts a pity we can’t reclaim the ‘lost’ time. But l am forever the optimist [thanks to LDN - its the endorphins you know]

Just thought - lf l do eventually get ‘cured’ - l still want to keep my Tramper!!

I have hope, if not for us at least in the pipeline to stop other people suffering this insidious disease! Given the chance I’d want a cure now BUT please sometime… Take care, you are in good companyM

Frances…

Just had a flash of inspiration!!!

Do you think we should wear t-shirts with ‘Its the endorphins you know…’ printed on them?!!!

Just back from a couple of hours at the monastery-huge contented sigh…

[Just come back from a long tramp on my Tramper with my rotties - gypsies are camped down the lane - these are gypsies with horse-drawn covered wagons. 4 Wagons - but 15 coloured ponies all tethered along the grass verge - and the same amount of dogs. AND several solar panels charging batteries - one lad using a l Pad !!! What ever next.

The problem is that nobody is spending any real money on finding the cure. The only money spent on MS is the drug companies trying to find a wonder drug to ‘help’ but not cure, if we are lucky somebody will stumble on to the cure. It would help if they found the cause in my opinion, it seems to help on the cure side.

Not in my lifetime but i live in hope

I am with wellman , however there is no point in wishing until it happens get on with things as best as we can

I expect to be firmly established in the tissue bank long before a cure is found. The next generation should benefit though, which is nice.

Great question! there is a feeling more progress has been made with MS research in the last 5 years than the previous 100 years. I know people don’t want to get their hopes up but we can dream. Peter

I don’t believe it will happen in my life time, but then I think if they did another awful incureable desease would come along and take it’s place. TB, Polio being just a couple of examples. But always hopeful for a miracle to happen.

Hi, I live on hope that a cure can be found. Even though it won’t benefit me (too damaged with MS now) hopefully it will help others.

So I continue to live in hope that this incidious disease can be eradicated.

Please god i hope so, im also tired of seeing the 10-15 years comment, whilst i feel like you very sceptical i also hang on to the positive results coming through about myelin regeneration.

I am about 80% certain that there will be a complete cure, but no doubt this will take fifty years (?!?). I think that for all us good souls on the forum here, there will just be some lesser treatments that can mop up the damage. Unfortunately, in my experience at least, there seem to be about seven side effects for every one benefit. Sigh.

Best Wishes,
