Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - The Answer to the Symptoms

This is the next instalment in my The Journey section. To read the previous posts, click here.

Monday 29th April 2013- That’s a date that will remain in my memory for a long time.

The day of my neurologist appointment. First of all, as strange as this might sound, I was lucky to get this far so quickly. There are so many people who have weird and wonderful symptoms as I called them, that push to see a specialist but get no where. I know what it is like to have a GP who doesn’t understand. Who has no answer for the symptoms and so makes suggestions only for them not to work. From January to March 2013 I went back and forth to the GP. For other people reading this who have been through something similar, I know that 3 months is a relatively short length of time and for that I am very lucky.

Retrain Brain and Simply-Shine - Collapse to Conquer

This post was updated on 24/03/18

For the last 10 days or so, I’ve had a flare up of symptoms, which includes

  • Weakness in legs
  • Difficulty standing, walking
  • Drop falls
  • Severe tiredness; struggling to keep eyes open and speech slurred.

When I’ve felt like this, I’ve had little option but to rest. I haven’t had the brain power to do anything else. There is no doubt that having a flare up is frustrating etc. No one is going to enjoy them.  I had to cancel or change plans, including going to a birthday party of a good friend. Well there is never a good time to be ill though is there. So rather than dwell on it and think life is on hold, I acknowledge how I am feeling and accept it means I need to rest. That’s not wasting time. It is exactly what I need.
