Thanks Gretchen for clearing this up for me. I did not want to go running back and bug my Doc and sound crazy. I hope things settle down soon. I think I will just ride this out and if the ON gets much to much worse then call. I just hate being on prednisone, but it does help the ON. I can live with the other junk for now without meds.
By the way, I like how you say 'I have no lesions on my soul and so I will live with no limits'...that is awesome! Hugs Katie
Well Gretchen, I have to say...I am so greatful for all your advise. You sound like a very respectable woman and you certainly have my respect and many others who come in here for help. That quote you made up is great and very good for just an all over thought on how we ALL should look at this blasted disease called 'MS'.
My attitude has changed alot about having MS just from reading your posts and many others who deal with it each day as I do. I feel stronger even on my bad days just knowing I can come here and get help if I need it or offer help to someone else, makes me feel better. Sunny has also given me some great words of encouragement not long alog ( Sunnycitus, I think)?
I dont feel as discouraged as I first did when I was finally given the diagnosis due to the above. I even started back at the gym, but not teaching any aerobics, just yet anyway. I hope to get back into it by Spring (teaching). Meanwhile I am beginning to understand my limits and the days or time of day when I need to cool my jets, when to ride or when not to ride, when to paint or not paint, and so on. Some days are better than others, but they to shall pass.
Thank you for your friendship and support Gretchen, you are wonderful! Hugs~Katie
It is good to hear from you again. I am sorry you are suffering from fatigue. It is one of the most difficult to treat symptoms and one of the most difficult to live with. Keep the faith and listen to some good music. That is such an awesome escape.
Thanks for posting. We miss you.
