Hi everyone, I haven't posted in a while but have been here lurking.  I have had my official 3rd flare.  It started about 7 days ago and 3 days ago my Dr wanted to see me based on my sx's. 
 
Well after a few minutes he said I'm having another spinal chord attack.  And during this visit he gave me a permanent handicap parking placard form for the DMV.  I also agreed to try another shot at steroids.  He had to do alot of convincing but in the end I felt desperate to do something.  I am actually glad I did cause even after the first round I started feeling better and then after today's round I feel even that much better.
 
I have to say that in the last 6 months since my dx's I wavered in between feeling like I actually DO have MS to feeling like maybe it's all a mistake. This flare makes me feel like it's all real.  I think the placard has something to do with it too. 
 
My spirits are great but I feel like I can no longer be in denial that this is probably gonna continue to progress now. 
Thanks as always for my opportunity to vent.
 
Prayers,
Christine

Hi again. Sorry, saw this post after the other. I hope you continue to feel better. I just got over? my a relapse myself, and after 13 years of RRMS, I am starting to feel as though I am declining as well. I hope not, and I hope that is not the case for your too. You are RRMS I assume? Perhaps it will slow down :)

Hi Christine,

It's so good to hear from you! I'm sorry you are in a flare but I'm glad the steroids are helping and I hope you continue to get better. Those placards are a big help! I hope you think so too after you've had it for a while :-)

Good morning,

Kimber, I agree the placards will be a big help now.  My family has been on me for a while to get them but I resisted.  I think now I realize that I can't be in denial. 

Jena1225, yes I am RRMS so there is indeed hope that this will all calm down and that the Copaxone in time will produce results.  My Neuro is still hopeful on that.

Uppity, thanks for the warm thoughts.  So nice to have this support.  When I got up I felt even better than yesterday.

Prayers,

Christine

Hi Rhonda thanks so much for the kind words.  I have good feelings about this relapse not being like the first two.  I begrudgingly admitted to my Neuro that MAYBE he was right about the steroids.  Don't want his head to swell! 

Prayers,

Christine
