MS truly affected my life on June 5, 2014. I have spasms, numbness, fatigue. I'm trying my best to deal with this, however it has affected my work life and I have had to go on intermittent FMLA due to the unpredictable flare ups which seem to occur every day since my diagnosis. I am currently reading and researching every thing I can to learn how to live with and manage this disease while keeping positive energy around me. I have to admit, its been crazy and I'm truly trying to accept what I have, learn to live with it, not let it get me down, however the fatigue plays a HUGE part in this disease as it relates to work and my social life. I want to be encouraging to others as I learn myself how to balance work/life balance. Also I have learned to say No, and I have learned to listen to my body which I have ignored for years.
I have choses to live a productive, healthy life with MS. I am currently on the one pill a day Aubagio been on it for 7 full days with no side effects thus far. I am currently on the 7mg and will go to 14 mg after a full 28 days. The box will scare the heck out of you with the side affects, but I take it all in stride.
