I’m Libbie, I was diagnosed with PPMS one year ago and since that life changing day, I have become almost a recluse.
I get up , come through to the lounge and sit and watch TV until I go back to bed.
This time last year nobody would know there was anything wrong with me apart from slight staggering and looking a little bit drunk.
In the past few months however things are steadily getting worse.
My left leg gets numb as does my left arm and my fingers tingle.
Realising that I must exercise , I have bought a spin bike and try to do squats and general ‘keep fit’ things.
I have become more depressed and have anxiety which is through the roof. My husband is terrific but works long hours as a chef which is almost lucky for him as I’m a bad tempered self absorbed nasty b*tch.
I’ve kept my diagnosis to myself and have only told immediate family and 2 friends.
I have also realised that even trying to reach out on here, I have started every sentence with I ,, (sorry)
It would be great to get in touch with people in this MS ‘Club’ although know I don’t come across as a person anyone would want to become friends with, I actually am quite nice.
Fingers crossed for any potential buddies out there ,
Thank you and sorry again for the moaning,
