Feel Better About MS
Hi I'm 27 and got optic neuritis about 2-3 months ago in my eye. Doc was not going to do an MRI but being the worrying person I am I'd already gone on the internet and made the MS connection.
Today I got my MRI results. I have lesions so I am pretty scared. Very scared - I've read some horrible things, cried alot and generally felt sorry for myself over the last month. I have been referred to a neuro but might not be for 6 months.
I don't really know why I am writing. I think I have been searching the internet for some kind of "it will be fine". I recently moved to Australia from New Zealand with my partner of 3 years and my 11 year old daughter and this all happened here so I feel so away from my friends and everything.
I have not been diagnosed with MS yet but found some hope in my age and one symptom being a good prognosis so I guess I just want to say thanks for making this site and I really hope you are all doing well. You seem to be such positive people I only hope if I am diagnosed I can be that positive.
I have a tendency to freak out and worry and relaxing right now seems like speaking latin. Anyway this is really a thank you for making me feel better.
If only for a moment - it was good,
