I was diagnosed in June 2009. It has progressed a little faster than I expected, with symptoms my neurologist says there is little to be done for. Steroids have not helped any exacerbation and in January I started my Copaxone regularly (after a period of denial and issues getting used to the painful injections). I also take Ibuprofen 800mg and Baclofen 20mg 3x daily, Vitamin D, C and B Complex and Melatonin for sleep, I was already on Celexa for depressive symptoms related to Fibromyalgia, but since my diagnosis of MS, my dosage has tripled. I have always worked in high stress, demanding positions and typically have worked at least 2 jobs, but I find myself flagging under the fatigue. I don't know anyone else who has this disease, despite hearing from so many people "oh, I know someone who has that". I'm a mental health professional so I know the importance of managing stress and caring for my mental and emotional health, but I find myself at the end of my rope as I spend another day off work due to pain.
Current Mood: tired
