I have MS

I was diagnosed with MS this last friday. In one sense, it is a relief. I now at least have an idea of what to expect and can put a name to what has been causing me all of these troubles. Of course, it always sucks getting a diagnosis like this…

On the bright side, if I’m going to have MS, now is a pretty good time to have it. Research is finally making some serious progress (more about that in the next post) and it looks like treatments are available now overseas and will hopefully be here within a couple of years. In the meantime, I really am not in all that bad a shape. I can get around, I have no pain, and I have nothing that will prevent me from getting a new job. I’ll need to be sitting down with the new one, but still…

I was pretty much anticipating this, so it didn’t come as a big shock. I’m doing OK right now and I think that within a few years I’ll get some treatment. I don’t know if that is going to be in this country or not, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.
