Saw my neuro last night and i finally got diagnosed!. I have RRMS, i have 4 new brain lesions but the one in my spine looks better but there is a hint that there is another smaller one there.
I am doing ok as i have had my mind in limbo well he said lol. I said i had done some research and he was pleased that i was mentally prepared and it made telling me alot easier he said hahaha.
He was really nice and i asked a few important questions and got satisfactory answers. He is starting me on copaxone and setting me up with their MS nurses. He did say it can take a while as have to get funding and lots of paperwork to fill in. Didn’t say exactly how long but i guess i waited this long to find out so it doesn’t really matter i suppose.
I feel ok, maybe a little stunned as it is strange hearing it out of his mouth even if i was expecting it. Hubby is ok, again i prepared him and he little upset for me as he feels its an unknow future and all that, but otherwise handling it well!
My parents…not so much. But i will talk to them today and see if i can put their minds at ease. The way i see it i could get hit by bus tomorrow…and there are worse things i could have!! Overall i am rather jubilant that i now have a diagnosis and i know where my mind has wondered off too and am happy to keep being me and wherever ms takes me i will still be me and just remember that it is in the background somewhere.
Thanks for helping me out while i been in limbo and i valued all your replies. I will hang around as i may need help for a bit yet.!
Neuro did say take time and process it and talk to your family and it will help me adjust as necessary! Bless him…already planning on doing just that!
One last thing…was copaxone a hood choice? I honestly went for one with less side effects as i work, and i not affraid of needles at all, so it didn’t bother me about that part. Just really worried about what to expect from it.?
Any replies may help hehehe.
