Standing Back Up.. Need a Hand and Hello

Post by Maryzen » Thu Feb 04, 2010 7:57 am

Hello kind people. I am so sorry that any one of you must endure a thing like MS, may you be stronger because of it in ways that were incalculable to you before MS. Once you stand back up, there's nothing to keep you from being the best you possible.

Standing back up, that's the thing. I am not in any way "back up". I am down and under, waiting for an answer to something I would bet on. Do I have MS? My Neurologist is the bomb! She's a Harvard gal that wants me to be well and has indeed seen the result of something causing my body to freak out. She is at war and I need some armor! I was docile during all the MRI's, EKG EEG bone density poking prodding taking blood and then more blood Spinal Tap! Nothing shows up.... what? Is this usual? My days are filled with symptoms that toss me out of the shower, down the stairs, up the stairs. I walk with my cane so I don't fall. For over a year now I've watched while my body withered to 94 pounds sick on the toilet with a trash can in front of me. That Harvard gal brought me back from that brink, I now weigh a lovely 133 pounds. yay! I feel stronger and knowing about MS has helped me understand my own body. I am realizing that I have had symptoms for years and years. Didn't know it was all connected.
Okay, I am much closer to "Standing back up" than I thought. I like this community and would welcome any word of wisdom and experience. Do I have MS? I am open to suggestions and conversations about my crazy body and why it has become my enemy. I need a different outlook, a hand up.

Well, that was therapeutic for sure. Thanks for reading my rambling. Click my friend button and boost my confidence.
so much love to you all!

Remember there are many people like yourself. We look for help from our friend, new and old. I find it interesting to read of the life experiences and then appreciate the slight problems that I have. Life is not always greener on the other side of the road, until now. With the possible treatment of the CCSVI treatment/study in the works. This may be the answer that we all are looking for. If you have any questions or looking for life experience to give you some answers you have come HOME. The people who ask also answer questions for everyone. I'm sorry for becoming one of us, but it's nice to know that everyone will protect your back. If I can be of help, I will

Take care
