Hi guys, hope you are as best as can be.
Been a very long time since my last post, with the new update my account was lost and what not.
Since the last post, I have had a total of 5 steroid doses in just over a year since diagnosis, diagnosed with osteoporosis and had an episode of bells palsy, BUT I do not wish to give up because it can always be a lot worse!
I am still at college, and a lot of my friends and people I have met suddenly saw me in college walking with a crutch, and missing out on a lot of college. I want them to get an understanding of what MS is, and have put my name down to hold and event to carry out a presentation on multiple sclerosis, how it affects us and how specifically how it has changed my life. And I want to urge the “norm” to make the most of what they have, to avoid the dissapointment if something like this ever happened!
And for that I need your help! Please!? This is my first question I would like to know, I guess for more than just the presentation, I have only discussed this with someone who I see fairly regularly, but his MS is much less crazy unlike mine! How do you cope, with the worry of a relapse, or even worse disability, things that you used to love and can no longer do, How do you psychologically and mentally keep going? I would like to know, might help me if I take a few tips, and may even help all of us.
Sorry if something like this has been posted before, haven’t been on for ages, but it does feel good to be back!!
