Relapse number 2 :o(

I've not been feeling myself for a few weeks and it all came to a head on Monday.  I rang the doctors and got an appointment for 3 hours time for an unrelated matter but by the time I got to the surgery I had lost my balance, had visual disturbances and felt like my legs would colapse at any moment.  And i'm still waiting for my whelchair - typical!

I rang my MS Nurse on the advice of my GP and low and behold I'm having another relpase.  I've already had 1 this year - is that not enough????

So I've been backwards and forwards to the hospital for 3 days to have high dose steroids by intravenous drip and they've taken blood tests to see if I am building up antibodies to the Tysabri (my normal monthly infusion).

So firstly an apology to all my blog buddies.  I just ain't been in any frame of mind, fatigue wise, to leave any comments for weeks.  Rest assured though I have been by all of your blog posts but just not shown my presence.

Secondly I've decided I'm not making Christmas cards this year.  I bought some a few weeks ago with the intention of making a few, but this relapse has really scared me and I'm just not gonna push myself.  Hope you all understand.

So I'm off now for some food and put my feet up in front of the telly and catch up on stuff I've taped.

Hi Jill, so sorry to hear that you are poorly at the moment. I hope that you pick up really soon. Everyone will understand about the Christmas cards, do not feel guilty at all. Take care of yourself first, that's the important thing.

I have teeth trouble at the moment, it has completely floored me, so although not in your league, I feel for you. Thinking about you, and sending you a virtul hug, your Judith xx

Jill, I'm so sorry to read that you've been struck again. Perhaps a change of meds will help you pick up. Put yourself first and only do what is essential. Christmas cards are a minor detail and no one will mind, even not getting them, if the writing of them becomes too much of a chore. Jane

Hope you feel better soon.
