now is the time when my brain goes to mush and all the strategies I normally have, I forget. Fear sets in.
Noticed a heaviness in my limbs last week, now I see the familiar strong reddish/purple colour under my eyes - that always happens just before a relapse and it's unrelated to lack of sleep. My arms and legs feel leaden, numbness is creeping back to my right side, and I know that the MS is starting to rev up again. I can never seem to get through Aug/Sept without a flare-up. Dammit!
Anyone any advice for minimising the flare up or averting it?
Oh and practically-speaking I have a large 6-month old boy to mind fulltime - not easy to get the kind of sleep or rest I'd have taken in the past to help a relapse go. I will be accepting all offers of help from family and friends!
