Four months post Lemtrada.
No spells of vertigo for over a week.
And, today, a bike ride that was as good as it gets. Clear, windless, blue skies. Cold, fresh air; and me feeling strong, fit and happy to be alive. Those weeks and weeks of grimacing through stormy winds and tough winter rain; weakness and occasional dizziness; all felt worthwhile. The bike felt fast and light; I felt free and high on adrenalin.
This is why I want to cycle through MS. And, touch wood, long may I do so.
Residual MS symptoms do persist… but you can’t have a party without a few guests. If this is life, then they’re welcome.
A short blog commemorates this line in the sand, because this feels like the date that the chemo-drugs have, at last, been flushed from my system.
Game on, the rest of my life.
