I don’t think there’s ever a good time for an MS diagnosis, but as a Christmas present, it’s one of the worst.
You are likely to have several different feelings about the diagnosis, from numb, to furious anger, sadness and even grief. Many people never reach the stage of ‘acceptance’. And to be honest, why the hell should they. It’s a shit thing to have moved into your life.
Have a look at https://www.mstrust.org.uk/understanding-ms/newly-diagnosed-multiple-sclerosis there’s a whole load of information on there. And in fact you’ll find the MS Trust has a great many pages of information on a whole host of subjects.
Like for example https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/fatigue which it appears has moved in on you. Fatigue is like a crushing weight, more than just ordinary tiredness. And having children you’ll find it’s not easy to deal with.
It seems that your neuro wants to get things moving for you. So you’re likely to be contacted by an MS nurse, if you get a good one (and to be fair, most are pretty decent), s/he will talk over the options for disease modifying drugs, which are designed to reduce relapses and the severity of them. S/he will also liaise with other services, depending on what you need. And those things will change over time, from physiotherapy, to occupational therapy and continence services should you need them.
If you don’t hear by a week of so after New Year, phone your neurologists secretary and ask for the contact details of the MS nurse.
I hope your Christmas isn’t overshadowed by this news. Have a good one.
