My Experience with Plasmapheresis for Multiple Sclerosis

Dan and Jennifer Digmann Health Guide June 15, 2012
  • I have known for a little more than 10 years my Multiple Sclerosis is no longer considered relapsing remitting. 10 years ago that information was very hard to hear.   I remember thinking, “Sure whatever, doc. Like you know for sure that I now have secondary-progressive MS. Seriously.&rdquo...

    You are very brave for being so open about your MS - not only about its worsening (which is difficult enough) but about how you handled it all.  Through you, others like you will have hope (which you should have) and courage (which you now have given them). 

     

    Kudos to you, again, for sharing your story.  I wish you all the best of luck,...

    Hi Jennifer,

    I think you said it just right. Try what you think might improve your life. Who could argue with that? 

     

    My health was very steady until Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) came along. Whatever you face, you know you have the strength after learning to live with unexpected relapses.

     

    There is beauty all around you, you have loving support,...

      Thanks for your kind comment, Jan! Dan often reminds me that those of us living with MS are a special breed and he's right, we are so lucky to have the support of friends that are perfect strangers. Understand what I mean?

       

      All the best to you,
