First post, a bit about me

Its been a year, since my first relapse which led to diagnosis. Blue lighted to hospital with Nystagmus, severe Dizziness and numbness all over. Was left on a trolly in A&E for two days in the worst hospital i’ve ever been to (not mentioning names). I work away so at first there was no-one who could be there for me.
My mum had to ring the hospital to tell them take me to the toilet and give me water, since they just seemed to forget I was there… I eventually had an MRI and the results read to me in front of a room strangers by a junior obstetrician of all things… yeah, brutal.

I’m still not back at work (their fault not mine, I’m ready whenever), broke up with my fiancee of 10 years a month after I was diagnosed and having lost touch with all my friends I’m stuck at home on my own and going a bit stir crazy, Its been rough.

Thankfully I’ve got a brilliant family that support me as much as they can, but they’re not here all the time. They’ve got places to be, lives to attend to. The Gym has kept me sane, but theres only so much of that I can take without getting bored/tired.

Despite all that, I’m optimistic. Shits gunna work itself out. When? Dunno, but it will 🙂

Hi @kris605
Welcome to the club!
I’m kinda jealous…..you were given your DX by a doctor…. Your lucky I got mine by letter two days before Xmas.
Joking aside you’ll find no end of support on here.
We all have a pretty good idea how you’re feeling.
The rest of us will be along soon to say hi.
Keep smiling.

@kris605
You got a recommendation as well, all I got was here’s some books see you in three months…..
You’re so so lucky…..
I’m stuck in the house also.
It’s a mission to get to asda just to get a loaf.
It gets easier but as it stands at the moment it’s always gonna be there hiding and just waiting to pounce.
And honestly try not to stress it feeds MS.
Keep smiling

Hi @kris605 and welcome. As Stumbler says we’re quite friendly, can answer most questions, occasionally make a joke (no guarantee it will be funny!) and remember, don’t stress about anything, stress us the worst thing with ms, and if you do have a question, remember with ms there is no such thing as a srupid question.😍

hello @kris605, that is a truly shocking run of events. You’ve discovered this site which is great. At any time, someone, somewhere will understand exactly how you feel. I think we would all agree that the first years is the worst, and the toughest. But onwards and upwards, keep posting and stay strong x

I’ve had ms for practically my whole life. I’ve run the gamut of symptoms. One of which is a feeling of disorientation and unreality. I have I hard time coping feeling this way. I wonder if anyone else can relate to this

It makes me feel better, knowing that others have similar experiences. I’ve gone through life thinking I was losing my mind.
