…make you more susceptible to them?
I’ve had MS for a long time (26y) and have only recently (last 36-24 months) engaged with the MS community.
If I didn’t know better I might wonder if all the extra awareness and the amount that I think about it now exacerbate my symptoms.
I merrily ignored my MS and could go days without even a smidgen of thought about it.
Now, in order not to look pissed I have a cane for my day to day stuff, obsess if I am getting enough of the right type of exercise, always concerned that fatigue will step in and chop me down in the middle of an article/work assignment and consume info about drugs and research in a way I never did before.
Rather pleasingly, I had to fly to Vancouver (from London) last Wednesday at extremely short (6h) notice and returned yesterday, with a horrendous connection and delay through Phoenix. I was quite concerned that I would fold with fatigue either way. So far, not a bit of it.
I am very happy but a bit surprised. Buy now, pay later?
Must. Stop. Reading. Too. Much. about MS…
