I replied the other day, but I guess I pushed the wrong button and lost my reply.
Very sorry for the loss of your brother! Way too young to go.
Lose the flip-flops! I trip over the carpets, the cat, and my own 2 feet when I'm fatigued (most days). Flip-flops would just add to the difficulty of walking without getting hurt....I'm thinking steel toed boots might be the answer...God help anybody walking near you! Ha!
Driving. My GP orderred 'no driving' back in Feb (the start of my symptoms) Some days I feel I'd be OK to drive, but I don't take the chance. I was convinced to follow his orders when he asked me how I'd feel if I hurt or killed someone while behind the wheel. I have to rely on my wife to drive me everywhere, and that's working out fine for me.
2 years seems like a long time between MRI's! I'm getting one in August, which will be 6 months since the first two. I guess if there was no noticable progression of symptoms 2 years would be adequate, I don't know...
Take care of yourself, and watch your step
