Saying hellp

Popping in to say hello. In limbo - learning the lingo.

My MRI is on Thursday. Before Christmas I woke up not being able to see very much at all out of one eye - was told it was optic neuritis.

I have hypermobile joints and a couple of years ago got into a state where I had trouble walking. I put a lot of effort into recovering (three cheers for physio onthe NHS) and the irony is I now feel fitter and healthier than ever before. I can run 5k in under 30 minutes. Well except for when I was half blind - just walking in a straight line required concentration! I’ve got my sights set on a 10k or two this year.

My mood varies between worried and determined. Mostly determined, I think influenced by my earlier experience of picking myself back up again. Soon I will give a talk to an MS group for my work. Facing my fears or something.
