Im new to the forum and pretty new to MS too. Im 23 and got diagnosed back in april, had symptoms for a couple of years, but things moved on abit when my eye stopped moving as it should last november… like the idiot I am, I thought Id just put my contact lenses in the wrong way and thats why my vision had gone funny…turns out that wasnt the case!! Im waiting to start disease modyifying therapy, and will be starting on beta inferon 1b (i think)
I was doing well comoing to terms with it intinally, but have been struggling a bit lately, my energy levels have been crap and Im not quite sure how to deal with it, Im trying to rest when my body tells me too, but also have a life to lead and things t be getting on with!! How does anyone else deal with this?
Also, how have other people close to you dealt with it? Ive found a couple people, who were part of my nearest and dearest, distance themselves from me, including who was my boyfriend, who said he was struggling to cope with the worry of me and what was going to happen and didnt want to have to deal with it…
Anyway, I’ll stop waffling now lol
Take care and thank you
