Mandatory Rest Period: MOVED!

Doctors

LatelyI've come across people talking about their doctors not listening to them and not thinking they have what they feel they do. This scares me. My doctor, I can say has not been bang on with some things in my past either (ie: not sending me to a Neurologist when I had numbness and tingling in my legs and an arm, duh!). But when I was 25 and this was happening to me, I'm not sure I would have been as prepared to deal with a possible MS diagnosis. I think I would have been... I don't know... more devastated... more depressed about my future... more reluctant to accomplish what I have... I'm glad the cards fell as they did. I'm a stronger woman today and don't feel like my MS will defeat me any time soon. It might be a constant irritant but I'm confident in the doctors I have surrounded myself with to keep it in check. And I'm confident in myself to be honest about how I physically am.

  • This is one of the aspects that make is so onerous. It manifests itself at an age where you do not have the benifit of the years of wisdom, just youthfull zeal and hubris. The traits we soon find easily crushed.

  • I wonder if you would mind talking about the symptoms and how it led to a diagnosis? I'm in the midst of testing and MRIs, and I'd be interested to hear more about how the MS first began to manifest itself.
