My story

I got diagnosed in March this year and around the same time I found out my girlfriend of 4 years left me… it’s been 2 months now since I’ve had my first relapse.. Im been doing well but for the last 2 weeks I’ve been having major anxiety 24/7 I’m afraid that will tripper some Symtoms.. when I first found out I had ms my life left life it was ended I was literally a vegetable in my girlfriends bedroom. My whole body shut down slowly… but I got injections at the hospital that cleared all then symptoms I was going through almost instantaneously. On top of that my vision came back I had double vision since October.. I get scared sometimes.

Dawson, hope this finds you in a better place, I am not going to give text book answers, I write a monthly blog, why, well it helps those that have no clue about MS and those that suffer from it can relate to a lot or have questions answered by reading it. MS changes lives, drugs can also change your condition for good and bad, but what I hope, after reading it, life does improve because you learn to live with it take a read and my contact details are there, good luck

Hi @dawson-mcwatch .

This is very much a wake-up call that life involves a lot of curve-balls and you’ve just received one.

It does not have to mean the end of your life as you know it. There are a range of medications now available that may well reduce your MS from a threat to a minor irritation.

Give yourself time to process this diagnosis. I can see that you’ve started this process by joining us here at Shift. Just be wary of Dr Google, who can find you horror stories that are totally out of context. It’s best to stay with reputable websites, e.g. the MS Society.

In the meantime, live healthily, eat healthily and avoid any causes of stress.
