I’m a planner so being diagnosed really has me thinking about what I need to do long term to minimize the impact of MS on my life and family. Do any experienced MSers have any tips?
For instance, I live in a two story house. Should I be saving money and getting the house ready to move to a one story in a few years?
I’ve started using apps on my phone to write lists for EVERYTHING, a calendar app for the whole family, and the note app so I don’t forget anything. I also have a notebook I use at work and as soon as I get back from a meeting I write an email to everything reiterating what was discussed so I have a record I can keep to refer to again. I’m also trying to figure out how to make my house more oreganized so I don’t lose as much stuff! Any other tips for not losing stuff or locking myself out of the house (again)?
I have an appointment with a neurologist who’s an MS specialist in a few days. Should I ask for a standing prescription for prednisone in case I have a relapse on a weekend, or can’t get off work to go be seen right away?
I’ve applied for VAhealthcare benefits again (recently got off active duty), and am working on getting my medical records together to file a VA claim. Any tips for that?
Anyway, any tips on how to organize and plan my life around this would be really appreciated! I’ve really liked reading the posts on here so I have a better idea of what to expect so Thank you!
