I was hoping for an update, but I was also hoping for better news.

I have to say, you seem to be handling this very well. I hope that the medication helps with the leg pain and that the MRI is scheduled soon.

Take care of yourself and keep us posted.

Hey Momma, I miss you. How are you feeling? I am okay. I think I need a new pain pill.

Did you try the soap trick??

You have been on my mind all day today.

Mommasita, I just read your entire thread and just want to sends loads of dust and prayer.

I have had MS since 1979 - I was diagnosed a year after the initial symptoms. One of the most difficult things about MS is exactly what you've been going through - once the diagnosis is "official" you can begin to cope better than now with all the unknowns and what ifs.

Try not to worry....most of us with MS do very well. It is not always doom and gloom the way Drs act when we are first diagnosed.

Hang in there...I'll be thinking of you...don't hesitate to pm or email if I can be of any support.

Hi Momma, I am home and I was wondering if you were? Did the Dr's office get back with you. Let me know, Diane.

Dear mommasita...
I remember the day when 5 stanford doctors told me i had MS...it was like a wall going up and i was bricked inside the wall. well...it is 22 years later and i want to encourage you to NOT GIVE UP and not give in and stay healthy and eat right and exercise, exercise, exercise and more exercise.

1. when your legs feel like cement...get up and walk...force yourself
2. when you whole body wants to throw up...not your stomach but your limbs get a nauseated feeling...drink water and go for a walk.
3. when you start to feel sorry for yourself...think of someone far worse off than yourself.
4. when you get up every single morning try doing this: open your eyes and say thankyou to what ever being you might believe in. be thankful you can walk, talk and see...in whatever form...for my dear lady...that is a great day.

ms does take a while to sink in...but you can become your own worst enemy...truly...you must literally get hugely strong within yourself and keep moving. if you don't you will go down hill more quickly than you had hoped. i am living proof. my mri's show paralysis on my left side...well...i am proof that the brain and sheer willpower can retrain the body. i work out 3 days a week and take zero meds. it can be done...but much of it is mind over body and remaining really strong. don't give into the disease...

my very best to you.
