My name’s Peter. I’m 26 and from Belfast. I was recently diagnosed with suspected MS. I got blurred vision and from there the diagnosis was made. At first, things were pretty scary and I kinda just felt in limbo about it all. Still do to be honest. It’s just one of these odd conditions that is pieced together, rather than a concrete diagnosis. I’m just holding on to hope that it’s a ‘mimic’.
Regardless, it’s a manageable condition and I’m learning more and more about it everyday. I’m also given confidence from the amount of support groups I see out there. Moreover, I have gained confidence rom reading other peoples testimonials.
Things are ok for me now after I was given steroids in the hopsital. However, what I’d love to know is, what changes did everyone make after hearing their original diagnosis? mine have ben:
1: Ctting processed food OUT. I always had a healthy (ish) diets. Now, I don’t drink alcohol, have more motivation for the gym, have cut all junk food out and my diet consists of fish and chicken, leafy vegetables (kale, spinach and runner beans), museli, soya milk, plenty of water, fruit and vegetable snacks.
2: Drive to take up meditation.
3: Ensuring I’ve plenty of sleep
4: I’ve also became interested in the Dr. Tryy Whals diet/paleo diet.
What does everyone think? I’d readily welcome your thoughts as recently I’ve begun to feel slightly lightheaded at times during the day. Not sure if it’s MS related or diet change related to be honest!
Look forward to conversing with you all on this!
