My name is Randi; I'm 20, and I'm preparing myself for a clinical diagnosis sometime within the next few months.
I recently lost vision in my left eye (and by 'lost' I mean it seemed like i was looking through fogged up glass, through one eye) and following a game of hot-potato with different doctors was told I had Optic Neuritis. That, coupled with fatigue and (for some odd reason) a very painfully sore sensation in my arms like the day after being vaccinated, is pretty close to proof that I'll be diagnosed with RRMS.
I have an MRI coming up in May. I don't really know what else to say, other than that I'm scared and uncertain- my partner and my family keep telling me to stop researching things online because it's stressing me out more, but I guess I'm in denial, I keep thinking maybe I'll find a hail mary that will fix it, or make it not happen to me, or something to just make it all stop.
I guess I just need people to talk (vent) to, without feeling like I'm burdening those close to me with constant reminders of how utterly terrified I am.
Also I ramble,
In other news, Happy Valentines day!
