Brabio or Tecfidera🤔🙃

I was diagnosed RRMS in Dec 2020, the neurologist believes I've had it for 11 years. I've had 2 relapses in 2 years and currently have 1 active lesion (great way to end the year!) I have narrowed my choice of DMT down to Brabio 3xweek or Tecfidera, I like that Tecfidera is more effective and a pill form BUT I am terrified of JC Virus/PML, I met my (unhelpful) MS nurse yesterday (Jan2021) and I hoped that she could offer more support and advice but she basically said call us and let us know if/when/what drug you want to start on 😱...not what I was expecting. She did do my blood work up to send to Belgium for testing in prep for both drugs but I am terrified. I am considering not starting treatment and trying the overcoming multiple sclerosis 7 step recovery diet. I have done so much research, read medical papers & searched for personal experiences, I know every case of MS is unique but I am feeling so alone and scared. I don't know what to do 😕.
