I'm feeling very blue today. I was diagnosed or partially diagnosed four weeks ago.
I'm usually quite an upbeat person but everything is just getting on top of me and I don't seem to be able to resolve anything.
So that is why am here. I would like to get some advice. I have been out of work for over a year now. I am doing my own work at home. I have savings but I would like to know what benefits I would be entitled to and how do I go about getting them?
The other question I have is what is the best form of treatment for relapsing remitting MS? The neurologist I have seen at Kings College uses Beta Interferon? Is this a good course of treatment? I have done a serious amount of research but I would just like some additional advice. Also, I think I have had MS for five and a half years I am reasonably symptom free? I have minor problems on my left-hand side, feeling spaced out and fatigue (on occassions). Is this good?
I have a very healthy diet. I don't eat meat. I eat lots of fish. I take vitamin D, B12 and Omega-3. Unfortunately, I get Tinitus if I take too much B12. I cycle but I don't cycle as much as I did. I did the London to Brighton last year but didn't feel up to it this year.
Is there anything else I should be doing?
Thanks, in advance, for any advice. I hope everyone is well and I really wish the rain would stop and let the sun come out to play. :)
