MS waits until your defenses are down. If you are sick, or stressed or in someway, you are not ready for a fight, MS strikes. After being sick in January, I had a relapse which included vertigo, fatigue and a little bit of weakness. I tried to fight it on my own but ended up with Solumedrol as a last resort to fight back.
Now, almost three weeks later, I am preparing for the next battle. I don’t know when it will be, but I know that the stronger I am, the more unlikely it is that MS will attack. I let my guard down over the holidays which contributed to my latest relapse and I plan to take drastic measures to be sure that I do not have to rely on Solumedrol in the future.
The simple decisions I make every day, like what time to get up, what to eat, how much to exercise, who to spend time with, how hard to work, what supplements to take, and what time to go to bed are all instrumental in building strength and preparing for battle. Sometimes I don’t make the best decisions because I don’t think about how important they are.
I am thinking about it now.
