Over the decades of living with relapsing-remitting MS, I’ve encountered multiple episodes of optic neuritis, inflammation of my optic nerve. It’s always painful, with varying degrees of vision loss.
I’ve contacted my neurologist this morning, to ask if she’d be willing to prescribe a course of steroids for this recent episode of optic neuritis. I really don’t want to take steroids again, given their adverse side effects. Nevertheless, I really crave relief from this intense discomfort.
I needed to cancel all of my online counseling sessions for today. Thankfully, my clients were very understanding and willing to reschedule.
I take comfort in knowing that so many people are praying for me at this time. I’m going to just take today very easy.
