Result are finally in!!


drum-roll-pleaseGood evening y’all! I hope you had a great day and you are thankful tomorrow is Friday, I know I am! I have definitely had a long week because I was so stressed about what my MRI results were going to show. I can honestly say that worrying and stressing did not change the results!

I am beyond happy to share with y’all that the MRI I had on Friday was MUCH better than the one I had last October. In October, in the words of my neurologist, my brain was on FIREwith many new and very active lesions. That was terrifying for me to learn as I am sure it would be for anyone, but the one I just had improved drastically. The numerous good resultslesions that were causing all my issues last year have healed as much as they are going to! My absolutely fabulous NP was so…

  1. Alyssa, I’m so relieved this latest MRI for you was much better! I accompanied my son for his latest MRI this past April and it was such a relief to hear no new lesions had formed. He’s off his medications now because of insurance hang ups so I’m hoping he continues to fare well. Thinking of you!

    • Thank you! I am relieved there are no new lesions, I just wish all the pain would end! I know my stress isn’t helping, but I don’t know how to control it. I need to force myself to learn.
      I am so happy your son doesn’t have new lesions. What med was he on before? There is help available with most meds and he could get it for free. How is he feeling being off meds? I worry about him not being on anything as that is how I ended up with a bad relapse. Sending you and your son very warm wishes. If there is anything I can do to help with research free medication for your son, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

      • He was on copaxone, I think for free or nearly free, and I guess the hang up is with the copay. He’s just started a three week medical leave of absence from work and one of his goals is to get to the bottom of why the copay suddenly became an issue. He seems to be alright for the most part, but one reason he’s on leave is that his job is the graveyard shift and that messes with his sleep patterns, etc. Stress is such a hard thing to reduce! My stress causes my neck to badly kink. I seem to carry my stress in my neck and shoulders. 😬 So I’m learning to breathe deeply, relax more, and bounce things off me (metaphorically of course) instead of soaking things in. I’m a worrier so that’s a lot of my stress. Writing things in a journal helps me.

      • I was on copaxone at one time and didn’t do well, but only because I was terrible with the shots! I hated giving them to myself. I am glad your son is on a three week leave from work. I hope during those three weeks he rests and gets answers he needs. Please know I am here if I can do anything to help!
        I think I carry my stress in my neck and back as well. I am trying to relax more and take deep breaths when I start to feel too much stress. I truly believe writing helps me so much. I honestly have a hard time writing by hand as my hands start too hurt too much, but they hurt when I type as well. The weekend is almost here and I can sleep in and rest when I need to. Thank you so much for your comment Camie!!
