I would give it more time. You might alert your neurologist to the issues.
I definitely will. Thanks for advice.
MS also causes depression and anxiety is two ways. First is in the brain itself. The lesions in the brain or inflammation cause the emotions to be affected. Second the stress of being diagnosed, going on a DMD, etc. Cause stress. The stress leads to anxiety and depression. I went to seminar from the MS Society on this last week.
I had depression my whole life. In 2009 I was finally diagnosed with MS. I had neurological problems my whole life they just did not know it was MS. Two psychiatrists think the MS causes my depression and anxiety.
I went to a therapist after I was diagnosed. I got on antidepressants and anti anxiety meds.
I also do mindfulness meditation which is not weird as you think it is. I used to laugh at it. It gets you to focus on the moment starting with paying attention to breathing.When you are in the moment you can't worry about the future or think of the past.
Having a bucket list is good. Things to look forward to. It can be anything.
I used to be really depressed and anxious, angry. I am the happiest I have ever been.
I think the bucket list is a great idea! In the past 2 months I've gone sky diving and zip lining and in 20 years was hands down the best mental, emotional and physical therapy I've ever had. I'm sky diving again in August and can't wait! :)
