Obviously I don’t know your symptoms or anything but in my own experience, I felt like total rubbish after diagnosis. For a couple of months I was struggling to drag myself out of bed or do anything. A few months on, looking back, I was putting it down to MS but I actually think it was more phsychological.
The diagnosis is a massive blow for someone to get and even though I was expecting it and coped well with it (or so I thought) I think it still had a profound impact on me. I think I was depressed and I just felt unable to deal with the world. I went to work and came home and went to bed. I felt physically exhausted and unable to have a conversation or cook or talk to my daughter. But I’d had none of that before I was diagnosed and none of it since so I really think it was the diagnosis as opposed to the disease.
Now, it could be totally different in your case but I just wouldn’t underestimate how the diagnosis would have affected you.
I’m diagnosed 4 months now and relapsing but still feeling well. It still can be a bit overwhelming sometimes but it does get easier wrapping your head around it.
