oh what a bummer Kate. i started journey 2000. all kinds of things. My journey is here if you want to read it.
The beginning – My Journey begins in Brazil. – My Journey with MS (livingdailywithmultiplesclerosis.com)
in 2016 although i had a feeling i had MS and so did my neuro he said to me, sorry i have to give you the diagnosis of PROGRESSIVE MS. what a shocker i was probably about 65 then.
everyones MS is different. its a snow flake disease.
what i have learnt over time is a few things. KEEP ACTIVE, both mentally and physically but never over do it. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. if it says rest REST.
Get good sleep.
eat really well and healthy, no smoking or too much jungle juice lol.
dont read too much GOOGLE
enjoy yourself do what you were doing before the label.
have your blood checked to make sure your not vitimin D deficient
thats it i think lol. My life was cut short more when my husband died suddenly in 2017.
But now i am doing things to help others and enjoying it. as a social worker perhaps you could help teach online etc. a lot of people need help and advise.
but be brain active a lazy mind makes you feel worse.
mine feels sharper since i got more involved with helping others and i enjoy doing some on line courses too. I even got my level 2 health and hygeine lol well you never know when i might open up my own restaurant lol. xxxxx
PS one of my greatest joys now is my WILDLIFE CAMERAS. i have my own you tube channel.
this is my latest video. Its such fun have wildlife turn up at the door lol.
