I hope you’re all well and not battling the heat yet. I don’t know if any of you remember me mentioning the course for newly dx patients. Well tonight was the first of five sessions and it was really helpful. It was basically an introduction to ms, how it progresses and affects us. My Neuro was the speaker. But he asked us what we wanted him to cover too and he incorporated all that info into that he wanted to tell us.
Just like at his consultations he was patient and has the knack for giving the gloomiest news with such tact (without leaving something out or skirting information) in such a way that the light at the end of the tunnel continues to shine really brightly. You couldn’t wish for a better person to have on your team against the illness, and his nurse is just as available, friendly, efficient and yet so reassuringly competent.
I’d definitely recommend that if anyone of you get offered something like this, that you seriously consider attending. I’m actually looking forward to next week, in fact the entire agenda sounds very interesting. Have all of you had similar courses?
I’m tired now, so goodnight. But I’d love to hear your experiences of these. Thanks.
