Although I'm very much getting on with my life, going to house viewings, booking gig tickets etc, I'm aware of this shadow over everything. Even my boyfriend seems to be completely forgetting about my diagnosis as he seems intent on extending my daily commute to work, whilst considering the location of a new home, in order to shorten his. Admittedly his commute is long.
I do feel that everything in my life is in quite good balance at the moment and I'm sure that that has prevented the repeat relapses continuing that I experienced when I was so stressed earlier in the year.
The treatment I'm waiting for is called Lemtrada and it consists of an infusion for 5 days in hospital in year one and a 3 day infusion in year two. I feel very calm about it. I wouldn't call it excitement but there's definitely anticipation. I hope it does the job it says on the tin! It's not a cure but should stop progression for years. I'm still finding it bizarre that I'm waiting for chemo!
It's just a waiting game for now!
