The Drugs Didn't Work
Now that my body is clear of the steroids, I am still dealing with an MS relapse that was not in any way helped by those drugs.
None. Nada. Zip.
This is a first for me: an exacerbation in MS symptoms that is totally impervious to the effects of high dose steroids. It appears I have reached the point where the only thing steroids can give me is the most atrocious, mind-bending side effects, without any benefits.
My doctor has nothing else to offer me that I haven't already tried.
I've always believed that medicine has a rightful place in health care, and still do. But we'd be idiots to think that medicine can fix everything, and it clearly can't deal with life-long, chronic illnesses like MS.
It's time to accept that good rest and Mother Nature's finest foods aren't just the best "alternative" for me: they're my only option. The question is, do I really believe that they will be enough?
