Welcome investorvillage.com members

If you are reading this and you have come from investorvillage.com it's no doubt due to all the back and forth posts made today that stemmed from an original post on your website that linked to my blog. I found the link by tracing the number of hits to my blog back to the post on your site.

I went there today and signed up so that I could provide information about Fingolimod as one poster had asked about it. I didn't realize I was wrapping a hornets nest around my head. I was called a liar by one of the first people to respond and called out on the carpet by someone about my casual remark about the recent "study" of only 21 people that showed cessation of Tysabri may have something to do with an increase in the number of subsequent relapses in patients with RRMS. I agree, I should have left that info out all together as it had nothing to do with the info I came there to provide and I don't take it, or know anyone who does. Sorry for that! Sincerely.

That said, I didn't appreciate being called a liar. Someone on that board insisted that all Phase III studies of Fingolimod are 24 month studies. They are wrong and I should know that better than anyone merely investing -- I'm the one who's got the schedule of testing and the protocol for the next 12 months. I know at the end of the 12 months, if they are going to continue the study, I will have the option of staying in, but it's for 12 months. NO LIE.

I'm not an investor, I'm not a pharmaceutical company, nor am I a neurologist. I'm not pretending to be. What I AM is a person who has had relapsing/remitting Multiple Sclerosis for nearly nine years and I am currently in a clinical trial for a new medication. I know better than anyone else what it's doing for me. On that I am an expert. I was just trying to share. I didn't know it would explode the way that it did... I should never have posted.

If you're here because you are interested in the topic, please stick around and read the whole blog. There's lots of interesting tid bits in here.

If your here because you came to see if you could leave a comment and bash me, well, you're going to be disappointed. I changed my settings earlier and you can't do it any more. It seems some really childish people have way too much money in this world if they are investors who waste their time bashing some poor girl on her measly blog.

Now, back to my regularly scheduled witty self. For my regular readers, I promise I won't stray into that arena again. :-)
