Newly wed Tecfidera

Hi everyone, Thank you for the lovely and useful comments you left on my post two months ago (“Newly diagnosed teacher”). I apologise for not responding - I wasn’t sure if there was a function for directly replying to comments - and I was also busy with many things, including moving house and my own wedding. I was diagnosed with MS earlier this year, but it wasn’t confirmed until June and then in July, I was finally told I have RRMS. Subsequently, I was given a few treatment options. I started taking Tecfidera a fortnight ago, the day after I got married. I was warned about gastro symptoms, but thankfully, I’ve had none so far. However, I have noticed a massive dip in my mood; I’m a newly-wed, yet I am struggling to feel cheerful and energetic. I’m constantly thinking about meal times as I was told to take Tecfidera twice a day with food. And also the MS now just feels a lot more real. I hadn’t really felt upset before, as I wasn’t on medication and I was busy teaching during term-time. I am in my early twenties and now living in a new area, as a newly-wed, getting ready to work at a new school, on new medication, with a new set of emotions. Anyone have any tips? I absolutely love Shift MS and I am so happy and grateful to have found it. (Also- if anyone knows how I can respond to comments, let me know, so I can thank everyone on my previous post) Many thanks, Fraction
