Stay strong and keep on keeping on

Hi Matthew,
I was diagnosed July last year after a whole year of not knowing what was happening.
It gets better. Talk to other MSers. Learn from them how to cope. That’s what helped me emotionally. Physically it was the steroid injections and the medication.

Hey @matthew_r_smith, great that you have found this support network. Yep, would not want to revisit that pre and post-diagnosis space, it’s horrible. Now diagnosis is in, you need to focus your energy on recovering well, including your emotional state. But this can’t be rushed, so feel what you need to feel. Don’t rush anything. It concerns me that you are in so much pain; this needs to be addressed as soon as possible by your consultant. Nobody needs to be in undue amounts of pain. Have you discussed DMDs with your neuro? For now, eat as healthily as you can, try to keep any exercise up, don’t smoke and rest loads. You will be OK. Oh, and don’t Google, always stick yo official sites for all the information you need. Stay strong dude x
