Well, the excitement of my new medicine has quickly been quashed by me being laid up for 3 days in a row. I had been bragging to my nurse during my infusion that I rarely get ill. well, wouldn’t you know it, I got a cold the next day. A cold, big deal, right?
Here’s the thing. My immune system hates my nervous system. When I get sick or get an infection, etc. my immune system can go on the attack and cause an MS flare-up. I get the brain fog and have difficulty walking, along with my old friend exhaustion. This has happened to me once before and it totally freaked me out. I’m a little calmer this time, I’m expecting the MS to die down along with the cold, like last time. It seems to be happening, I’m feeling better all around today and hoping to go back to work tomorrow.
So I shouldn’t brag… I’m also going to keep in mind that things can change quickly, feeling good one moment, feeling bad the next is always a possibility. This should help me appreciate the times I feel good, right?
