Thank you for posting this Karen.
I think it is so scary for those of us newly DX’d, or going through a DX… or not even having anything concrete, so just sat in limbo.
I love reading stories like those you have linked to!
I just went to a jazzercise class tonight because I hadn’t been for two weeks due to feeling so tired and stiff but I made an effort tonight and was glad I did because it didn’t make me feel any worse physically but made me feel better mentally.
I felt a lttle bit sad near the end that I did struggle, when I could do the classes with ease only a few months ago, but I also thought, actually, at least I am still going. Even if I can’t do the whole session, I am, at least, doing what I can do.
It’s so good to have reminders every now and then from those who have lived with MS for years and are still able to walk, even with a stick for help and are not totally reliant on carers and wheelchairs.
It’s so easy to feel down in the beginning.
