Reikiblossom, from what I have been reading, my journey seems fairly short but it feels like a long time to me. I did ignore my symptons for a long time but I did finally go see the doctor about 7/8 months ago. I waited for 7 months on the NHS and my mobility was just getting worse and I was nowhere near seeing a specialist. I have been incredibly fortunate as my partner’s Dad provided funding so that I could see a specialist privately. The whole process took just 3 weeks! I hope your neuro appointment went OK, let me know. PS I love the newly invented “comissulations” and thank you for the hug!!
EFB, you sound like an expert and I am already thankful for your support. Your quote is so true. Right now I have good days and bad days. I am suffering from anxiety at the moment, which doesn’t help, but I have told everyone around me that the diagnosis should be treated positively and this will help me move forward.
Arwen & Catherine, the forum really is wonderful isn’t it? What an incredible community where we can all support one another. I cannot explain how much help I have found already.
Gokr, from the forum I can see that I am lucky to have reached diagnosis stage. There are so many people that are still waiting. You are spot on my emotion are all over the place but I think I am starting to accept it. My partner has had me out and about (I would prefer to hide) making sure that I get to experience everything, she helps me so much and nothing is a boundary where she is concerned. I will come round to that way of thinking soon I am sure.
Thanks for your comments everyone,
