FF 27 years. I was walking across a parking lot, and all the sudden, one whole side of my body went paralyzed. I couldn't walk. I could talk and asked a stranger for help (they proceeded to finishing loading their car with groceries, jumped in their SUV, rolled down the window, asked if they could call 911). I went to the ER, had a CAT scan, was diagnosed with MS. To date, I have not taken any meds (suggested Rebif) as I'm too scared of taking something so powerful w/unknown long-term effects and with only a 30-40% efficacy.
Any thoughts, prayers, whatever, welcomed. Just very down. I had weeks of same-side weaknesses. That has mostly gone away, but now, I have that MS fatigue.
Venting. Thanks for reading.
