DMD Decisions….

It’s been really encouraging to see so many people showing their support & raising awareness about MS this month via the various social media platforms.

It’s been 11 years since my diagnosis in 2008 and although I rarely post about my experiences of living with MS on social media, every now and then I feel the need to do my bit, with helping to raise the much needed awareness, so I too decided to raise awareness via my Instagram account this week!

Having spent lots of time researching this condition over the years, I feel blessed that my symptoms are relatively mild… well, for now anyway!

As someone who doesn’t really like taking pharmaceutical meds, I’m grateful that I’ve been able to manage my condition ‘drug free’ since my initial diagnosis. However, my neurologist is keen for me to get started on a treatment plan, to help slow down the progression, which I’m really not too sure about?!

Next week tho, I’ll be receiving results of my recent MRI scan, to see if I have any new lesions on my brain/spine/optic nerves… This, I guess will determine whether or not I should be giving into the drugs, but I’m still pretty adamant either way that I’m not ready for this?!

@sasbarella , well, you’ve done your research, so you have to make a decision that sits comfortably with you.

The scan results will obviously have a bearing on any decision.
