: Heather I was diagnosed with MS at the end of March. I lead a very busy life at work and home. i am a nurse consultant for a dialysis provider and travel quite frequently. I was worried about how my MS would affect my life because I want to be able to do the things I want to do. I decided that I was going to control my disease instead of it controlling me. My neurologist agreed that this was the best attitude to take. I try to look at the positive in everything. He said I could have an exacerbation in a month or a couple of years or not another one at all. so I have decided i will not have another one at all. I have continued on with my life as if i do not have MS. I take my Avonex religiously, am eating a better diet, and have tried to reduce the amount of uneeded stress in my life. i think some stress is good for you. Find someone you can talk to that will help you cope with your disease. You control your life no the MS. Just remember that. Feel free to contact me if you want to talk.
KIM I DONT KNOW WHAT TO TELL YA BUT YOU HAVE TWO CHOICES PLAIN AND SIMPLE YOU CAN KICK IT OR LET IT KICK YOU EVERY DAY IT REMUINDS ME THAT ITS STILL THERE BUT I GO ON I GOTTA BECAUSE THE ALTERNATIVE SUCKS MS IS LIKE A THEIF WHICH ROBS YOU OF THINGS MORE VALUE ABLE THAN MONETARY ASPECTS IT CAN ROB YOU OF YOUR DIGNITY YOUR PRIDE AND IN SOME INSTANCES YOUR CHARACTER
BUT THE SILVER LINNING (IF THERE IS ONE) IS THAT YOU MUST LET WHAT WILL LEAVE GO AND WELCOME WHAT STAYS WHAT STAYS YOU WILL FIND IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT HAS LEFT YOU THINK ABOUT IT I USED TO BE THE PROVIDER OF MATERIALISTIC THINGS FOR MY FAMILY NOW I AM THE BENIFACTOR FOR PROVIDING THE LOVE FOR MY FAMILY A VERRY ENRICHING CONCEPT DONT YOU THINK? BEST OF LUCK KEN
