my head is swirling with all kids of things. MS meds, stop or not stop breastfeeding, birth control or wait 3 months, applying for disability....ahhhhhh i need a spa day
i was diagnosed with MS 4 years years ago when i lost my vision. and i didn't want to be on meds cause i thought i could handle things but in april of this year i had a relapse and had really bad issues and had to be put on steroids for 4 days. so i had to stop breastfeeding for 5 days and Elryc did not like that i had to fight him to take a bottle and when i was low on breastmilk i had to fight him to take formula. me and him were happy i could breastfeed him again. so i am going to be put on meds to help lessen my relapse its called copaxone and i have asked other mothers about it and they did just fine but my doctor say he doesn't think i should breastfeed. lactation nurse says that it would be able to get through the milk and a le leche leader says that my body will filter it out of the milk. so with all the research and asking i have done i wanna go with my gut and breastfeed him while one it. its just so much info and i'm scared and i feel so overwhelmed. and i don't want to be on birth control cause the last time i was on it i had panic attacks, depression, and suicidal thoughts so i don't know what to do about that. i just pray that whatever happen i am doing the right things
Aw Melynda.. sounds like a lot of choices, I'm sure you will make the best ones!

Aww I'm sorry. I get stressful days too where I just want to get out of the house haha. Spa sounds great!
what is MS?
Multiple sclerosis. My immune system gets confused and attacks my brain, spine, central nervous system, organs just basically me lol it sucks
Immune disorders are no fun... I hope things worked out for you.
