Bit of everything

I went ahead and had my nose pierced!!! It was a great decision, no pain, no infections and finally did something for myself! This Christmas will be my first with MS and I’m sure many of you will know that it’s annoyingly, a big deal. I am still able to do everything and be myself, I just feel frustrated that I have it hanging over my head. I try to carry on but it’s a lingering nuisance and sometimes I have reality checks about how s*** this condition can be. Sorry for the ramble, it’s tricky to rationalise, sometimes.
I also got my most recent blood test results showing my lymphocytes at 1.3!!! It’s been 8 months since Lemtrada, and last month they were 0.8 so it’s shot up. I’m concerned that the higher your lymphocytes are, the more likely you are to relapse as there’s more immune system to attack. Am I overthinking? Apologies for the long post. I wish you all well over this festive season 😊

@milliepipkins , yes, you are over-thinking.

You should enjoy the day and let tomorrow look after itself. Don’t spend your entire life worrying about things that may not even happen.

Just enjoy your nose piercing. 😉

Enjoy the fact you are still able to do everything.
And the fact nose piercings never harmed you.
Im not sure when you were diagnosed but MS is damaging silently try to ignore it
I’ve had it since 2004 still can do everything
Its eating fresh food + state of mind.
