I promised my Best Friend that I'd pose this question to this group: "How long did it take from your DX to feelING better and not tired?" "When does the break from this disease come?" (She seems to think that I should be in remission, as if I have cancer).
I've tried to explain to her that it's a life long disease, and she always responds that she has read countless stories of people who have had it for years, but that have no limitations.
I've been DXED for a whopping 6 months, and feel 70% better now than before my DX, thanks to DMT. I still get tired, but NOT like before. My Neurologist does not know which form of MS I have yet - guessed at PPMS, but we will see. I tell her most seem to be able to get through their days, but deal with their issues privately. I think this disease is harder for her to accept than for me.
OK I did what I said I would. Any suggestions on how to get her to "SHUT UP" appreciated.
