Hello! i have been recently diagnosed May 9th , I am 40 yrs married with old two young children who are very active and a teacher . I am very scared and worried and just need some help understanding what i am going through. My symptoms started 2 yrs ago when i lost my vision and had blurry vision for almost five days. Since then I have had about 12 relapses that include tremors, cognitive situations, twitching of eyes,blurry vision, sensitivity to touch. I am wonder do the relapses mean i am getting more lession. I am wondering how do i know if this is normal ms pain or normal i am 40 and getting older pain. I love the ms manager app because it helps me see that my pains aren't everyday. so I really suggest that to anyone who is not using try it out. please give me suggestions on what you do to make it through spiritually, physically, and mentally.View Thread
my problem is I am a teacher and the words and tasks dont come as easy as they use to. I sometimes can't find the words to explain things to the students, i cant write on the board like i use to, my hand writing sucks at time due to tremors. I know I don't get enough sleep but I do exercise - swim 3-4 times a week, and i eat ok. So now whatView Thread
I know this is an old post but I am a newcomer to this ms thing. recently diagnosed May 9, 2013. And reading all of this made me see that what i am thinking and going through is normal. Thanks! I needed this. and yes it is very hard to get going and stay going. I work 3 jobs and swim, married and have two very active sons. I am extremely busy. But I push myself, I pray a lot and when I need to I take a nap I to. I have not really learned yet that I need to slow down. I don't know how to slow down. I want to keep moving so that I can experience everything because I know one day I will not be able to. Thanks again!View Thread
