Well, I should have recognised the signs - there's been enough of them.
I haven't had an MS Relapse for nearly 2 years but it seems that's changing. With the agreement of my lovely doctor I'm going to try to ride out this latest health blip without the dreaded steroids. Thankfully, so far, my legs and vision haven't been affected, it's just balance problems due to exacerbated dizziness/vertigo compared to what I usually experience on a 'normal' (for me) day-to-day basis.
I'm very fortunate to have the support of friends and family around me - especially my wonderful hubby. The forseeable future will be frustrating for me having to give in to not being able to help those I love. There's never a good time for anybody to be ill but I'm going to (try) to accept the inevitable gracefully. After all, I have so much to be thankful for. Namely:
- My wonderful hubby
- Finally having experienced an RNA conference
- Making new friends at conference - and one who's become a very special friend.
- Making the NWS deadline (my completed Romance is being sent off this week)
- Editing/proofing Gray's Historical so he too will make the NWS deadline
- Reading lots of FAB books
- Enjoying quality time with my daughter before she moves into her first home later this month
- Meeting up with my mum occasionally in the virtual world of Pogo and no doubt losing my intermediate rating (again!) on Canasta.
- Revising my Romance with NWS critique and submitting the partial to Mills & Boon.
Hope to be back to my 'normal' self sooner rather later. :)
