My wife of 31 years had an MRI for preperation to extract a facial tumour. As it turns out, the tumour seems to be fine (we previously had been informed it was benign anyway), but they have found lesions.
She is having a lumbar puncture this week.
I am an utter wreck. Practically unable to function. Yes this is the wrong attitude I know, but my mind tends to work this way when it comes to health matters. I have read a lot about MS this last few weeks since the MRI. Whilst I dont particularly like much of what I have read, I have also come across positive information too. People who, yes, have to deal with the hardships and unpredicatblity of the disease, but through the right attitude and lifestyle manage to live a meaningful and generally good life.
Is this a fantasy or a reality? Can a life with MS be a good life?
The curious thing is that my wife has not had any major symptoms, although she has had minor ones over the last few years. I suppose that even with a positive diagnosis, it could be some time yet before something serious happens and she has a relapse. Is this a fair supposition?
Sorry for sounding weak and miserable.
