Tried to help others in Serbia and around, but...

A project log for Do-it-yourself Multiple Sclerosis treatment

Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) can treat MS very well, but current treatment cost is 36.000$/year. Analogue DIY medication costs 300$/year.

Tough luck so far. Making even as simple DIY medication as this one requires some basics:

1) At least some medical knowledge, how immune system works, what are autoimmune diseases, etc...

2) Ability to read and understand some medical papers and clinical study results at least to some extent.

3) Some guts. No doctor to blame. No mum to help. You're on your own.

4) Being honest to yourself. Yes, I'm ill. No it won't go away on its own. Doctors are unable to help me because they're broke (at least in Serbia). I need to fight.

95% of patients can't do these. It drove me to the edge of nervous breakdown back then. Ever since, if I see that one isn't capable of pulling this off, I tell them to go to their doctor and stop bothering me.
