This is my first post - so hi!
I had my first symptoms two years ago and have just this week been diagnosed officially with MS.
It wasn’t a complete shock as my GP and neurology consultant had both talked to me about MS from the very first symptom. I just don’t know how I am feeling. Part of me thought that it would be a relief to finally get a diagnosis, that somehow the mystery would be solved and I would have an answer to all those symptoms I have been dealing with over the last two year.
However I just feel like there is now more mystery. What will happen next? What will the next 5, 10, 20 years look like? No-one can answer those questions due to the unpredictable nature of MS and I am left feeling slightly lost.
Part of me wants to curl up into a ball and pretend it isn’t happening, another part of me wants to go out and do everything that I am scared I might not be able to do in the years to come…
I was just keen to hear from people that have been diagnosed and find out how you coped with those first few weeks/months after diagnosis.
Thanks in advance.
