Yep, I was diagnosed out of the blue in July and, aside from obnoxious symptoms & fatigue, my life hasn't changed much. My neuro fully approved my 4 step plan to manage (in the short term, as we all know things can change)
1. Take a DMD & do annual checkups. Very personal decision, I wouldn't presume to make a recommendation to anyone else.
2. Focus on overall wellness through diet & exercise.
3. Revamp my finances to better plan for the future. I hope for the best but am planning to be unemployed in 15 years.
4. Ignore, as much as I can, that I have MS!
My nuero & GP both said there's no point focusing on the MS until it demands it. So I'm still living the same life, I'm just poorer.
