I decided to start this thread - although not yet diagnosed its not gonna take Sherlock Holmes to work out I have MS - when was your first Ahh! moment?
Let me explain…
I was happy (sIc) with this illness up until I went bowling with my family.
In the last few weeks I have put up with not driving (hopefully this can be remedied by a full diagnosis), being ‘stick -man’ everywhere I go - and having my wife and children shout their new catchphrase - ’ Where’s your stick dad?’ losing my LHS mobility, my taste and my self control - I now ‘Say what I See’ and don’t hold back when cross - is this MS? - who cares!
BUT - I went ten pin bowling yesterday and I thought I would still be able to do it (using my stick as a fancy prop) but inevitably my usual 150+ score illuded me.
This was my first ‘AHH! moment’ when I realised that things were never be the same again?
I was not sure whether to post this or not - it sounds a bit glib and I imagined the responses might be along the lines of,
…when I couldn’t hold my first grandchild
… when I couldn’t walk my children to school
…when I couldn’t cut my wedding cake
… when I couldn’t say the eulogy at my grandfathers funeral
etc. so me not bowling properly (barely scraped 80) pales into insignificance.
I’m sure it was a simple task/event that brought it home to you lot too?
(I’m not a real doctor BTW so no symptoms or medical issues please)
