My journey with MS begins today

Jul 28, 2008 - 2 comments

I just returned from my appt with the PCP and she tells me we got a fairly clear diagnosis of MS from my brain MRI and has referred me to the MS Center at OSU in Columbus.  She said there was no one in town here to treat MS as well as there so I guess my traveling days begin.  I  will be up early and making that phone call to schedule my first appointment.  I sure hope I will not have to wait weeks to get in.

My MRI shows at least three active lesions as well as blackhole formation  - obviously I have lots to learn in new terminology.  For now I am just trying to not panic - I am also a heart patient, having had an MI in January.

It is an understatement to write - This has not been my year!

Hey! How have you been? I'm thinking we've not chatted, and if I have said hello, please pardon me forgetting!

Tell us what is going on, how the appt. went, and if you've gotten something lined up w/the Center.

How you feeling?
ttys,
Shelly
p.s. My apologies for busting into your journal like this! I don't know enough about the blackhole's either...lol, and I've got one right in my head too...maybe that is where all my missing memory went

Shelly,
I'm trying to get the hang of this new website (new for me!).  If we've met I don't remember either ....

You should read my post about the Friday rant - the doctor details are sort of in there.  
I was reading some of those health papers and found the blackhole aner ... its where lesions go to die out and literally suck themselves into nothingness. And I've got two!

I'm actually feeling pretty good today but I haven't done much except be on the computer.  Getting up and moving will tell.  

Be well,
Laura
