This post is a very big thank you to everyone.
I’ve been going through my own personal relapse hell these last few months and it’s thanks to you guys for keeping me sane; here and on Twitter.
Meeting with my MS nurse yesterday just showed me how important it is to be listened to, both by the MS professionals and my MS peers.
You haven’t shirked from my odd symptoms, you’ve sympathised with my sofa-bound enforcement. You’ve cheered me up and empathised when times were hard.
In a way, I’ve made sense of this relapse thanks to you. Each post I’ve written during this time has given me the most insightful comments, a lot of which I took to yesterday’s appointment.
MS for me is isolating and lonely. Get the violins out, but there is no Significant Other. No one to pick up the pieces, to cook dinner or flick a duster around. So the camaraderie I gain from you means the absolute world to me.
The knowledge that no one has to go through a relapse alone is empowering and comforting.
I hope you all know just how much this means to me.
