Conversation today with ophthalmologist after being referred by the health center for potential optic neuritis:

Doctor: I’m sorry they told you that you had optic neuritis! You don’t! That must have been scary
Me: yeah, I’m really glad that’s not what’s happening!
Doctor: well I mean, you do have MS, so the neuritis will probably happen eventually. Most of my patients who have MS get it, some even younger than you.
Me: oh. Well… Yeah. Okay.

Having a neurodegenerative disease is a lot easier to cope with when there’s no degeneration happening yet.
