Please Buck me up

Hi All,

Hope you are enjoying Easter and are as well as can be expected.

Normally I wouldn’t write this, but at the moment I’ve got optic neuritis, my worst leg feels like an Elephant and the other is beginning to join in…I’m fed up and am having trouble in standing upright and walking… Would you please give me a kick up the **se and I will feel more like my usual cheerful self? Thank you.

No need to do anything but wallow when in the middle of a rough patch - it sucks, so we are entitled!

I hope it all gets better soon.

Sending you a big hug Janet, in return for your kindness and support. I hope you feel better soon xx

Hello janet, I know the feeling well.

So here`s a warm hug from me too.

((((((((((((hug)))))))))))))

Its this endless chuffin weather that`s making us all feel so low.

I`m so cold meself today…going to bed soon…

nite nite hun.

luv Pollx

I think a bit of wallowing is allowed. I’m suffering ON at the moment too and I’m fairly miserable about it. Today is a bad, feeling blue day. So when I finish work I’m going home and getting into my fluffy PJs and slippers, watching all my trashy guilty tv shows and eating some comfort food. I will feel horribly sorry for myself and go to bed early.

And then in the morning I will wake up and everything will feel a little better and I won’t let myself be as glum because I gave into my bad day today.

A certain amount of self pity is a good thing I think. So long as you do it and then move on from it.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your kind words and hugs, much appreciated. Wb, you naughty thing, I did have a chuckle, so thanks for that. I spoke to my ms nurse today and she said I’m having a relapse, I never thought you could actually get a relapse with spms but apparently you can, so I guess it’s just another step into the breach!!! She is writing to my doc’ to see about putting me on yet more steroids, already take a maintenance dose, what fun we all have. But thanks my cyber friends you’re such a great bunch of people.

Hi Janet

Sending you a . You have my sympathy. I’m just recovering from a relapse which I worked through. I’m now on Easter holidays and now the steroids are out of my system so now all I want to do is sleep. I wish now I had taken a bit more time off work rather than just a couple of hours here and there. Ah well, we live and learn.

Hi Tracey,

Glad you come through your relapse and thank you for the hug, they are such nice things to give each other.

Awww Janet. Sorry you are feeling low,

My optic neuritis was bad a couple of weeks ago and an ice pack over the eye helped a bit. Hubby bought me an eye patch but I felt like long john silver so I didn’t use it.

Take it nice and steady and here’s another ((((((hug)))))).

Shazzie xxxx

I know exactly how you feel , be strong tomorrow will be a better day. This might just be me but sometimes when things could be better , I find if I write down all the things I dont like I feel much better . Hope x

Thanks Shazzie, I enjoyed that hug as well and Hope that is such a lovely name to have as you and all the others that have replied have given me hope. Thank you all so much.

Big warm Welsh hug for you Janet. Going through rough patch myself, so know how you feel. Hope you feel better soon. :slight_smile: x

(((hugs))) and a little poem for you Janet. I hope you feel better soon. xxx


It’s awful when you’re poorly

And you just don’t want to know

You simply can’t be bothered

Because you feel so low


But being ill won’t beat you

Your spirits far too strong

In no time you’ll be back on top

Just where you belong.
