Hello everyone. I am very new to this forum, this is actually my first post ever. The reason why I am here right now is because I have RRMS since 2014, I took Tecfidera, didn’t work, now I will probably start Lemtrada in a few months. I just had a very bad relapse a few weeks ago, sever vertigo and balance problems that lasted for about 2 weeks. It passed completely after taking steroids. The problem right now is that I have PTSD because I am very very scared of the possibility of the relapse coming back. I feel like I have been completely traumatised. I have fallen into a deep depression and I have this catastrophic view about everything in my life. I am so afraid of the side effects of Lemtrada but at the same time I never want to go through a relapse like the previous one again.
At the moment I feel like I am 23 and my life is over… that it’s never going to get better and that there is no point in living. I feel like I will never be able to have a normal life again and that whatever I do I will never be able to beat this. I feel like my own body turned against me… I am so scared..
I am sorry for this depressing post.. I am not normally like this but I have never experienced a relapse as bad as this one before and I really have a lot of trouble coping with life at the moment. I didn’t really know what to do except writing here..
