Hi (or should I say G’day!?)
Stumbled upon the site a few days ago, joined up straight away and I’ve spent all my spare time since, reading the posts (there’s been a lot of nodding of the head and ‘me too!’ comments)and the info links. Great site, made awesome by great people. Haven’t really met or spoken with other people with MS, kinda been avoiding it, but this seems like a very safe and supportive environment.
I was diagnosed as having MS in early 2009. I started on beta-feron in late 2010, after a second exacerbation. I’ve had 2 further episodes, late last year, and started on Tysabri in January of this year. I’m yet to be tested for PML, so I’m still a little apprehensive about the treatment, but my neurologist assures me that I have nothing to worry about for a few years.
Biggest challenges at the moment are fatigue, poor memory, fatigue, difficulty thinking of the right word, fatigue and trying to get the right word out (think ‘go left’, but say ‘go right!’ FRUSTRATING!
Did I say fatigue? I’ve got three beautiful little cherubs – 10, 7 and 5 yo, so they keep me busy and don’t let me wallow in self pity too much.
Anyhow, I look forward to reading more posts in the future.
