I was diagnosed a month ago tomorrow.
I was signed off work for a week to come to terms with it!..been back to work- as a teacher for past two weeks and really feel like I just can’t cope. I had a bit of a meltdown yesterday and decided to speak to my head of department. Fair play, they have been really supportive but i feel such a failure and guilty that others will have to take up the slack in my absence, let alone the kids i teach and the parents that pay for their education. I am now going to be working 3 days a week until the easter holidays and then reassess…is it normal to feel like i have jet lag all of the time and headaches like i have never had before. I can’t seem to get a handle on this and worry that I may bit a bit low as I cry at the drop of a hat. I know it doesn’t sound it on here but so far I have been trying my hardest to stay positive and say bu**er the MS but it just seems to have slapped me in the face and left me lying on the floor this week. I see my Neurologist on Tuesday to discuss drugs…not even sure if i want to start them yet.
Any advice would be really appreciated xx
