What a Relief!
I never thought I would hear myself say the following words and be happy about it: "I Just Have MS!"
but that is now the case. I found out 2 days ago that my blood test for NMO (neuromyelitis optica) came back negative...yeah!!
Until I read the email from my MS nurse clinician, I hadn't realized how stressed/anxious these tests had made me?! Makes me wonder, if it wouldn't have been better to keep me ignorant/in the dark UNTIL the test result came back, 'cause the stress of waiting for the results kind of made my symptoms a bit worse...at least, I think so!
Oh well...I can now breathe a little easier knowing I'm not going to die! LOL ...at least from that disease. And I can continue on, trying to help my body heal the bloody long lesion that is occupying my spinal cord.
