One year later

Dec 13, 2012 - 0 comments

One year ago I was dx'd with MS.  The day that changed how I look at all things regarding my life.  Am I better or worse than a year ago?  That is a tough question to answer.  Physically I think I am better.  PT has helped tremendously.  I feel I am more mobile perhaps others do not see it but I think I am.  My neuro feels I am stronger so that is a positive.  Still there are things I cannot do without difficulty and the holidays just point them out.  Going to mall, "running" errands.  Yeah I haven't RUN in years!  LOL  

Financially I am in a worse position.  This is not a cheap disease  - not that any disease is but Doctors, hospitals and prescriptions are pricey.  As well as trying to eat healthier and live a healthy life - all comes at a monetary cost.  I am now faced with the prospect of having to add 10 hours of work to my week due to another income loss -  Not looking forward to that but we do what we have to do to make ends meet.

So as I reflect on the past year I am more accepting of my dx - and still try and keep a positive outlook every day!
