Mild MS is not so mild

I had a relapse last week and was hospitalized. My left leg is getting weaker. I have been taken Copaxone for two months now. I guess I was hoping to see things get better. I would like to chat with someone who is still working and how do they go through everyday without spending all there energy on work and having some left for home. I have troubles with my legs and temors in my right arm.

Re: Mild MS is not so mild

Hi, I'm working full time and, you know, it's tough. Some weeks are really tough when all I think about is getting home to bed and the dishes and dirty clothes are piling up...

I don't know what to tell you. I just take it a day at a time, don't push when I'm not feeling well, take advantage of the energy when I am feeling good. Try to enlist the help of friends and family for chores you're not feeling up to... I've noticed a stubbornness in MSers who refuse to ask for help! While I am that way too, I've learned to ask... there have been times when I've been too sick to even call the doctor myself.

I hope this flare-up passes very soon for you!!

Re: Mild MS is not so mild

I too work full-time and at times come home completely exhausted. I have noticed that when I start to feel fatigue my thoughts are cloudy, I make mistakes walking, at work, and driving. These are the evenings I go home and just relax. I also take Copaxone and had alot of expectations that so far have not been fulfilled. I have been on it since late July. My left side is the most affected too. I guess just keep in mind that this too shall pass and everything is temporary, God willing.
