I was diagnosed recently with RR MS and start Rebif injections tomorrow (yikes!). I know they’ll help but the thought of having to inject myself for the rest of my life has made me feel a bit angry and rubbish today. I though I was coping quite well with the diagnosis and everything else that comes with it but for some reason the full impact of it has only really hit me now and I seem to be breaking in to tears every time I think about it. This is very unlike me and, tbh, pretty unsettling when you go from happily doing the dishes to be being a snivelling ball on the floor (I say “happily” doing dishes in the loosest sense possibe!)
I live in Guernsey, have a fantastic fiance who, although he works long hours as a chef, is really supportive and does everything he can to help, and 2 beautiful little girls but no-one I can speak to about this. I’m sure this isn’t the right way of going about this but is there a way of befriending other people who feel like this? It would be nice to stop pretending that I’m fine, just for a little while!
