And so we've just spent another morning 'up the hospital', PP for more tests and me for my quarterly MS check-up. In Hastings we're very lucky to have a dedicated MS nurse as many areas of the country don't. However, the discussion today went roughly as follows:
MS Nurse - Hi, come in, sit down. (shuffling through notes) Hmmmm, so you've still got MS then?
Me: Errrr, well, yes.
MS Nurse - Bummer. Still, never say die eh? Anyway, how are things.......you know, with life, work, everything........?
MS Nurse: Oh dear. That's not good is it? But you know you REALLY MUST avoid stress and worry....they are very bad for your MS.
Me: D'oh! Really?! Silly me.
MS Nurse: Oh yes. Now I'll see you again in 3 months and in the meantime don't overdo things, and no stress. OK?
Me: Certainly. I feel better already.
Well I was paraphrasing but you get the idea. So, best get back to work then and avoid stress and worry. I was wondering where I was going wrong but it's all so clear to me now.
No problemo. I'm sure everything will be absolutely tickety-boo.
S'enuff to make a cat laugh...........
