I wonder if I'm going nuts right now. I'm pretty sure its the steroids, but I am on such an emotional roller coaster. EVERYTHING is getting under my skin. I'm ridiculously happy one moment, and blubbering like an idiot the next.
I'm feeling sick to my stomach. I'm seeing things that aren't really there. I can't focus. It's ridiculous.
And it all boils down to the fact that I hate Multiple Sclerosis. I try to down play it. When folks at work ask how I am, or why I'm at work when I was just in the hospital yesterday, I shrug it off. I say it's just MS, not a big deal.
I texted my therapist tonight to let her know I might be late for my appointment tomorrow - because infusion took FOREVER today. Then, before she answered, I was able to move the infusion appointment earlier so it wouldn't matter. She responded and said she was sorry to hear I wasn't feeling well.
I couldn't even answer that. My gut instinct was to just shrug it off, but with her, I really shouldn't. If anyone gets the real feelings I am having, it should be her. Although, I know I don't even want to share that, but certainly not via text. It can wait until tomorrow.
I just hate MS. I think I'd rather have about any other disease, or even better - none at all. But a disease that predictable, that would be so nice. One that I would know what to expect, and when - that would be so nice.
Instead, I have this disease that things seem to hit me out of no where. It effects EVERYTHING, and I even wonder if its making my mood this bad. I've never felt so discouraged before. My thinking is slow, my reactions are slow. My mood is so blessed down, and that I don't even know if its the MS or just the dealing with MS that makes it so. Either way, MS is the problem, and I really need to find a way to deal with it before it consumes me.
