So I met up with a friend yesterday for the first time since dx and she wanted to know what my MS was like. As it’s mostly silent right now I said that apart from very numb toes and sometimes feeling like I’m walking on gravel it was OK. Her response was to exclaim that she had numb toes too. She then went on to tell me at length about her cousin who’s working on a trial and perhaps I could take the drug on trial… sigh. If I’m being generous I’d think she was only trying to be sympathetic but I feel really low about it today.
