Another Blow

Well life has brought another blow to my health... As some of you know I had a DR appointment today to obtain a diagnoses after a MRI was performed.... Unofficially I was diagnosed with Fibromaylgia going on if the medicine works or not or possibly MS.. it has not been decided at this time... We are going to wait and see how the medicine works for my symptoms.... The problem is these two illnesses mimic each other in symptoms and until they start getting worse can you differentiate the two... There is a spinal test for MS but I refuse to take it because I found out through the MRI that I have a bulging disc that is lying on my nerves which causes some symptoms but not all that I am experiencing......Another good thing is the Cymbalta which was just prescribed is given for all three of these diseases so we are going to start feeling a little better as far as the nerve pain no matter which one is the cause..... I am not going to get any better only worse but it may take years for this.....My body is falling apart little by little from the inside out, but my spirit is good... Thank-you for listening... sometimes it just helps me to vent to a non-judgemental audience.

Prayer is what has got me this far so I think it will continue to get me farther.... Pray may not cure me cause it may not be in my plan, but it will make me take each day one step at a time and appreciate it.
