Unfortunately I've had a flare up of the MS this week leaving my entire left leg numb and making it difficult to walk. The first few days I handled it okay...but then I began to panic...what if the feeling doesn't come back...blah blah blah........all I can say is that I'm so glad I started the Copaxone. It will hopefully keep this kind of thing from happening again, or at least decrease the frequency of attacks. The doctor thinks I was overheated and that started the flare..............um, living where I do.....it's going to make me think twice before going outside this summer. In fact I'm going to order a cooling vest...not my idea of fashionable accessory, but it just may become my favorite thing to wear soon.
I'm not writing this to complain..........as has been the case in the past...this experience has forced me to re-evaluate what is important in my life. So, it's like a blessing in a dark cloak.
Thank you to family and friends who love me, support me and pray for me. I could NOT do this without all of you and your encouraging words. God is good. He's blessed me tremendously with exactly what I need.
