I feel so good, so why is my MRI results bad!?


Wednesday, July 25, 2012

After my fantastic appointment yesterday, I was sure that my trip to see my neurologist was going to be more of the same. Boy, was I wrong. I hadn't felt any new or worsening MS symptoms...just the obnoxious ones I already have that act up when I get hot. I've completely accepted the fact that these were now my life-long companions.

Since I had not experienced any new glitches, I was completely thrown for a loop when my doctor pointed out the 4 new MS areas on my brain. I have not missed any of my injections of Rebif in the past year, so we were all hoping that it would prevent any new spots, but here they are...my unwelcome visitors.

So where do I go from here?

Even though my first instinct is to throw in the towel and have a really big pity-party, I know that I can't do that. Even though I'm not sure about what is coming next (well besides the boat-load of tests that I will need to do) I know exactly where I will NOT go ever again. I will not go back to being a 300+lb woman. I will NOT be as weak and miserable as I was! I have to keep going and keep trying to make my body healthier and stronger, so that I can battle whatever is headed my way!

Wish me luck (I think I will need it)
