First big blog and was intending a light-hearted piece. Today was a bit scary. I’m not trying to scare anyone. Started on full dose of a new DMD on Saturday. Knew what to expect but didn’t expect sweats, breathlessness and feeling like I was going to keel over. I suppose it’s my body just trying to adjust. Little man didn’t have a clue. I just kept asking if he was okay. Putting Peter Rabbit on the tv saved the day for him. I telephoned my hubby and he got his sister to come round. The biggest thing about being a mum and having MS is that I don’t always like to accept help. Life happens and you have little choice. My biggest problem is that I’m such a planner. Having a chronic illness and being a new mum provides new challenges that means you can’t plan. Accepting that is the first hurdle. Little man and me are okay now.
