RELEASE YOUR HIDDEN TIGER
Living with debilitating conditions tears away at any self-confidence we may have had before diagnosis. What we see in the mirror is not always what our inner self believes to be true.
Please take a moment or two to absorb the above sentiment.
During my most recent neurologist check-up, I posed the question “How do I know if/when the transition from RRMS to SPMS occurs?” The answer came as no surprise. We are, after all, talking about the MonSter.
I will relieve any question concerning the mystery of MS.
There is no definitive divide in identifying the level of disease progression. If you wish to remain insurance-covered while medicating, it is a good idea to avoid labeling the actuality of the disease.
I haven’t experienced a defined exasperation in a long while although my symptoms continue to worsen. Does that mean I did what I asked my neurologist? Probably. Maybe. Who knows? And if I did, I'll keep it to myself until further notice.
After consulting with my little group of MS Gymmer buddies, I do know this: We are responsible for ourselves and our treatment.
I will never be the same person I was prior to diagnosis. when I look in the mirror, I am better than that person. I AM that tiger.
Have a good day,
