Progression

I have had RRMS for over ten years. The last two weeks I have not been able to walk. I have to admit that it is not the same as my past relapses. I went to my Neuro yesterday and he thinks my MS is progressing. He is going to order five days of steroids but told me not to expect to get the same results as before. He has ordered an MRI and said if there are no enhancing lesions or new lesions he will say it is progression. I am not ready for this. Even though we know it can happen when it becomes a reality it is hard to get your head around it. He will probably be changing my mess. I’m hoping I can prove him wrong but if I don’t I’m not sure how I am going to handle being in the wheelchair most of the time. What and how do others feel and handle this transition. Right now I’m just sad.
