The BS of my MS

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis April 11, 2006. It was a fairly quick diagnosis and there are days/weeks I can mostly ignore it. For those days I can't, this blog documents my journey.

Well, it has been a while. And I really should have updated by now, too.

Things are going...okay. In MS-land, I started having some balance issues about a month ago. nothing too severe--I haven't fallen or anything. I called my neuro to keep him posted, and he had me come in. He didn't recommend IVSM (thank goodness) because it seemed pretty minor.

I have now started having some sensory issues in my left side. It started in my left arm. My mom bumped it during church and I realized it felt a bit strange. It has moved into my trunk, down my arm, and somewhat into my leg. I even feel numbness in my ear. Weird. I have a call into the doctor to keep him posted. I really don't want steroids, though. I moreso wanted to chart the progress of the flare ups.

Other than that, I get really tired when I walk a lot. But otherwise, I am okay.

In non-MS land, things are going a bit nuts in various areas of life. It's just too complicated and too private to spell out. But it really is exhausting. I feel the sh** is hitting the fan all at once, and really have no place to spill it. Oh well.

But I am still here. Thanks to mdmhvonpa for checking in on me at my other blog. I tend to write more there--non-MS related. But even my efforts there have been waning.
