Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

Last year, when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, my world ended. I have heard stories of how autoimmune disorders ruin lives, so I believed that's what would happen to me. Over the past year, I've read more literature, and read some success stories. One story that I've read was a book written by Terry Wahls. I think I'm going Ito follow her guidebook and alter my diet, using paleo principles. I'm going in to see my neurologist tomorrow, to get an ultrasound for my thyroid. In addition to this, I will ask him about low-dose naltrexone, and if chemotherapy would help alleviate my condition. In addition to this, I will ask him if I should start going back to school full-time. I want to study nursing and/or pre-med. I'm tired of not being a taxpayer anymore, and my disability prevents me from working, more or less. I bet a profession of nursing is sort of a happy medium; not much physical activity, just more thinking. I want his opinion on this I'll ask him tomorrow. The profession of nursing I feel is honorable, and would be a good one to be in for a veteran. I think I'll try to become a certified nurse practitioner, eventually. Thank you for letting me borrow your eyes and your brain.
