Lemtrada & Pregnancy

Hi folks,

I know this does tend to be a common subject but I am currently really struggling to deal with my emotions and thoughts on the matter so thought I would reach out.

I am only diagnosed 14months so I have had a crazy year and family and job issues have also played a big factor within that year also, so I know I have had a lot to cope with.

Basically I have had round 1 of Lemtrada in Nov and the plan is to do the sensible thing and wait four months after round 2 before attempting to start a family. I have also had issues with endometriosis and hyperthyroidism so that could also have implications.

My best friend has just had a baby this week and I am just really struggling to hold it all together. I just feel awful feeling basically jealous. I am consumed by worry and want, worried that it won’t happen for me, worry that there will be issues, and ultimately worried that I won’t be able to even cope with a family due to MS!

I just hope I can pull myself together and face this all with strength and grace.

@emmaeew , now that you’ve written down your feelings and concerns, you should put them all in that imaginary box and get on with your life.

Be wary of family and job issues. The stress that this can cause can severely damage your health. You have to ask yourself whether the issue is worth the health impact and then act accordingly.

You’re too important!
