Hi welcome (sadly) to the MS forum where no one truly wants to be.
I have been supporting a young women with her first relapse after her baby was born. we just talk about anything and everything, and never get too serious about things. she saw her neuro was taken to hospital and stablised. then left with a team of helpers from NHS.
I have encouraged her constantly to talk to her family and partner. TALKING can help. You see with MS everyone is different and deals with it differently. I think you have quite enough on your plate how did you cope for example with your diagnosis of diabetes and epilepsy?
I dont think its not knowing its not knowing how to deal with the aftermath of relapse perhaps. One minute your going along nicely, then blam your knocked off your feet. Your goal therefore is to get back up.
How to do that is the question?
reading lots of it, about relapse and recovery in MS. I am sure there is a lot of stuff out there even on MS society.
I am assuming you are being supported by you MS team which is most important. They will guide you through with therapies, diet and exercise and you may be assigned a physio.
You need your MS team to talk to. I am assuming if you say your relapsing you were told by one of them, so its up to them to guide your through it. I mean what DMD are you on?
Hey girl take some time for yourself if you want to cry do it, rage, scream. I dont think you need to be strong for yourself and your partner too. Like is said how do you deal with the other 2 you have been diagnosed with. you say you know what to expect from them do you? I always though diabetes could be unpredictable and so can epilepsy. with MS a relapse is a slight worsening of your symptoms and you need to halt it.
See i dont have the relapse remission type I am PPMS and its with me 2047. anyway talk to partner, talk to MS team, get help from them, ring the MS Society help line, 0300 500 8084. get active to understand your MS.
sorry i am waffling now. I am sure others will be along soon. BUT talk to someone in your team ok. xxx
