    If I get you as my secret Santa, I am SO gonna include a picture of an aubergine Not an actual aubergine mind you: Lord knows what might happen if you got the real thing :p:
    XDD That aubergine shall haunt me until my deathbed.

    I can just see St Paul at the pearly gates listing off my life and bellowing, "HA! You cut yourself on an aubergine!? LOSER! LOSER!" like a crazed football fan ;.; Either that or i'll get reincarnated as one.

    I need to try and get on here more but with Uni, i've actually got so much better with my social anxiety. I've been taking part in societies, doing volunteer work in the community, making a bunch of wonderfully weird friends and (so far) no completely failing at life. 'Tis going much better than expected

    Evenin' emobambam, can't say I can ever appreciate all the hell that MS causes but i've done some work experience with service users who have them. It's wonderful to hear you seem to be having positive news though :yep: Always good as well to get a doctor who feels more like a cohort than a overly paternal carer especially when everyone else treats you as different, hopefully you can get her more often. Still, you certainly seem to have a good positive attitude which is a life saver through conditions like that, so it looks like you're on a good track :pierre: El kudos.

    Hi all, not sure what to think or feel

    As i said in my last few posts I have been feeling strange in the last 2 weeks basically I cannot tell if its down to restarting medication, changing weather etc.

    Basically I feel more normal in the sense I am clear headed but sleeping 10 hours a day and have dry eyes and still feel a little depressed etc so I am confused that if being clear headed but low is better than low but just lying on sofa with no worries.

    hello everybody.I tried to leave this post earlier but I couldn't find it.if somebody has seen this post before I'm sorry.I have MS.it's been such a struggle fighting this disease.you go days and you can't get out of bed.you have problems walking down the hallway.you constantly fall.it really hurts when your an adult and you fall.people start treating you differently.they treat you like you have some mental handicap and your stupid.everyone in my life including family has tried to take advantage of me or steal from me.I have relatives trying to steal my medication.when I first got diagnosed with MS the neurologist put me on this shot called betaseron.I have two lesions on the middle of my spine.I have one lesion on the base of my neck.I have several lesions on my brain.when the lesions on your brain become active it's like you're stuck in Allison and wonderland.a couple of mri ago.they told me the lesions on my spine and neck are not active anymore.they believe my MS was going into remission.I didn't feel like that.I was in constant pain.I had to take MRI on October 31st at 11:30 p.m..I had an MS appointment the next day at 8 a.m..I never had this doctor before but she was really sweet to me.she knew what I had been going through in my life maybe that's because I'm a college graduate.maybe she looked at me more as an equal more than as a patient.she told me she wanted to go look at my MRI from last night.her and four other the doctors went into a small room for 20 minutes.she came back into the examination room with a big smile on her face.she told me right away that I had no more active lesions on my brain.the lesions on my brain have reduced in size.the lesions on my spine and the base of my neck have disappeared.I've spent so much time thinking about death.laying down in bed and thinking about the mistakes you have made in your life,the people you have hurt.when she gave me the news I just felt like the weight of the world fell of my shoulders.if anyone out there has a loved one suffering from MS tell them to talk to the doctor about betaseron with their doctors.it is a miracle drug.another drug that has always helped me is diazepam.they give me one prescription of 30 diazapan for 3 months.it really helps my MS.thank you for listening to my crazy thoughts.posting this message has been very emotional for me but it's such a relief to be able to tell somebody my MS is in remission.if you know anybody with a MS please give them the love and support they need.it's a horrible disease.I always make a lot of typos.this is just too long to proof read.I'm sorry for all the typos.thank you for listening.I feel much better now thank you! I just wish I had somebody special in my life I could share this with
    Hey. My grandmother has MS, she has done since the age of twenty. It's such good news to hear it is in remission for you

    Rant...

    Spoiler:
    Show

    im noticing really stupid things recently that i really shouldnt, such as i know i need to cut my nails BUT when i do, they will then be too short if i need to release my urges, and they wont do anything so i will look to doing something worse.

    im still really crap at eating like normal people, which im worried is gonna bring on an ED because i know im fat, and i know i need to loose weight but i dont have the motivation, so i secretly love not eating all day until tea time, i wait until my stomach rumbles and just sit right through it, because that rumble means my body is using up my fat right? i know finewhell when i move into my own place this will either get worse, as i know my boyfriends mum wont know if iv eaten or not, OR it will get better because there will only be me and my boyfriend so i wont mind eating as much...but these thought process is scaring the crap out of me

    also started hearing noises again (mouse related) and i KNOW there arnt any in this house/room, something tells me there could be, i mean the back door gets left open to let the cat in and out, AND theres a cat, cats love mice right? i know i heard one last night, and im terrified of hearing one tonight because im in a fairly bad place as it is

    managed to get out of going to the fireworks :woo: i love fireworks, but im so scared of bonfire night since a friend died on bonfire night 4 years ago (not fireworks related luckily) and i now hate going in a car on bonfire night, and when i have been to firework displays, i find myself thinking about him the entire time im looking at the fireworks, and in a way i wish i didnt, because i have SO many good memories of bonfire night from when i was a kid, but a lot of the time now, i just think of him, and panic when people suggest sleeping in a car and stuff

    ALSO im really struggling uni work wise, still havnt even finished this essay, and my mum still hasnt posted last years diary down, so i cant even do the other part to my work, i know i have ages till deadline, and i know i dont even have lectures, but im still finding it so ****ing hard to do

    gahhhh
    sorry about the essay guys

    Why thank you! I guess it was such a massive shove into the deep end but I've made friends who compliment me so well that I feel more confident doing pretty much anything, even if i'm not with them. A friend who you can skip and sing Wizard of Oz down a busy road with makes the hard Uni days incredibly fun. If I thought back two years ago and thought that I would being doing volunteer work I would be freaking out every day leading up to it, whereas now I can take it in my stride rather easily, a few butterflied aside.


    She sounds marvellous <3 I'm a student MH nurse so i'll have to make sure to try and adapt that same level of enthusiasm to my own practice :yep: So how have you been in and of yourself? I imagine such positive news has to be a boost to the system

    Finally got round to posting here. I haven't been diagnosed with anything, but I've started feeling really depressed since I've been on my year abroad. I constantly feel incredibly lonely-none of my classmates from uni are in the same class as me, so they're always organising things without me. I've been here for nearly three months and it hasn't got better at all! I really want to go home now, but I have to manage until the end of June next year. It honestly can't come soon enough-I can't remember crying this much in my life!

    thank you very much. MS is a horrible disease.it's only desire is to destroy your body.it really messes with your balance.I probably fall one time a month.the worst thing is the way people treat you.they think it's a disease that affects your mental capacityi have MS but I'm a college graduate.I'm fighting the fight.I made it to remission.most my lesions are gone. I am in a lot less pain since I received the news.thank you very much.no one in my life has even asked me about it.

    It sounds like there could crisis talks for over the next two days. I'm kinda petrified cause I don't know what will happen as a result.
