When will this end?

This is nowhere near as bad as many have it and I'm sorry if I come across as whiny but I'm really struggling with my mental health right now. The frustration is getting to me. I have balance issues and they aren't always visible but it makes it difficult for me to do simple things like sit on the toilet or brush my teeth. I have no confidence I won't fall flat or collapse and I just want to scream or break things because I can't do anything I want to, when I want to. I hate this. I hate feeling like this. I won't ever give up, but it's so so difficult. I just want to feel heard. I'm losing my mind. I've been stuck at home for the last week.

Hi @KS15 sorry to read that you're having a tough time with it at the moment but, thin gs will get a little easier for you when you have the right people to help you out. Do you have any Family or Friends for Support?. An MS Nurse should be able to sort out a Frame for your Toilet needs, get an Electric Toothbrush to help you out with Brushing. Frustration get's to all of us at some point, I was feeling Frustrated typing this, correcting typos over and over again. annoys the hell out of me.


@PeterFrancis thanks for the reply, I'll look into getting the frame for the toilet. My other issue is wanting to feel heard without upsetting the people around me. However much my parents love me, I feel like I can't express things to them without upsetting them and feeling like a burden. I see my friends sparingly because nobody has the time any more and I feel guilty saying "I'm feeling isolated, I need to see you guys now because I just want to feel normal for a bit." This is why I said I don't want to sound whiny because there's definitely more I can do but I haven't grown into it yet. Thank you so much for the advice and helping me think about things a little more, I really appreciate it.
