Guess who’s back

2

It’s been three years since I last posted on this blog. I have been meaning to do so with a while, but life kept getting in the way and then I just forgot! After a few encouraging words from readers of MS – Mo Scéal.. I’m back(ish)!

This post will be short and sweet! I’d like to fill you in on the last 3 years of my life (as briefly as possible). I hope to post more blogs in the future about how I am coping with MS through the lenses of working, relationships, reoccurring and new symptoms, accepting my diagnosis, emotional and mental impacts of having a chronic illness etc.

Where am I now?

After a long 6 years, I have finally finished college/university. I spent 2 years training to become an educator. I can happily say that I am now a qualified secondary school teacher. I have been working fulltime since September of 2017. My Multiple Sclerosis seems to have stabilised.


What, if anything, has changed?

I feel that I have learned to cope with MS and what comes with it a little bit easier than I might have 3 years ago. I have found myself genuinely listening to the rhythm of my body and understanding (for the most part) when I should take a step back and take care of myself first. That being said; I still have my stubborn days when I insist on doing an activity even though I know I’ll suffer for a few days afterward! YOLO? (“You only live once” for the older readers 😉) I have come to accept that I will not be able to do everything I did yesterday today and so on. I have not experienced a relapse in the past 3 years (touch wood). But, by Christ have I had MS days!



I look forward to updating my blog on a more regular basis and I hope that you will enjoy reading them. Until next time.
