Hi all, I hope you all are well. I haven’t really been active on the forum for a while.
Today I found some time to log on and I thought I would post a message to you all.
So just a little a bit about me and my MS journey. I’m 32 years young and I am a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist.
I was diagnosed in 2019. I believe my first relapse was before my diagnosis in June 2018. 2019 I had two more relapses and since I’ve been ok. MRI shows that my MS is active and I’m currently waiting to start Tecfidera. Tried copaxone in the past which I hated and quit after 5 weeks of trying it.
So as you know, MS is our biggest enemy and we can go through ups and downs through our battle with MS. Living with MS brings a lot of uncertainty for lots of people. Worry about the future, worry about our wellbeing and health and the impact this will have on our life. Ruminating on what life was like in the past and comparing it to what it is right now for you.
I would often get reassurance from loved ones but this just offered me short term relief. So what got me through the dark times of my relapses was my closeness to religion and my reliance on God.
Going through a relapse is not a nice experience. Sometimes it can really get us down. What gets you through a difficult relapse?
Thanks in advance for reading my post and for any replies.
