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.

My hand numbness is getting worse. Also, my leg is gimping out on me. B noticed that I was kind of stumbling along. It's like my leg is stiff or extra heavy. Great.

My anxiety has also been acting up, in the last week or so. There's no reason but I sometimes wake up at about 4:30 anxious as can be.

Have I mentioned MS sucks? Seriously. I can't type without making a ton of errors, which makes the whole dissertation thing tough. My mom mentioned getting Dragon Naturally Speaking, or whatever it's called--translating speech to text, but a) it's money I don't have and b) not sure how that would work with formatting, footnotes, etc.

MS doesn't care that now is not a convenient time to rear it's ugly head. And you know what I say? Suck it!

    Did you hear about the COPAXONE PreCISe data in the Lancet? Apparently it cuts the risk of developing MS in half!
