Had MS 7 years and struggle with….

Planning ahead when about to do something.

I just do then suffer the consequences after.

I do wrong things continuesly and never seem to learn by hardly any of my mistakes/errors

I upset my wife continually, which tires and upsets me a lot and I’ll continue to do so.

This is draining the energy and life out of me.

@dvtrv , we have to understand our ever-changing capabilities and then live within them.

Adopt a can-do attitude and enjoy what you can. 😉

Hello @dvtrv. Sorry you’re in a bad spot. The good news is that we all continually make mistakes and that won’t change anytime soon! I know it might sound strange, but I’ve often thought that partners and parents of MSers need the same level of emotional support as us, really. It says on your profile that you enjoy socialising, do you do that together? There are partners and parents who post on Shift, could your partner be involved in that do you think? There have been lots of posts on this very subject recently. Stay strong……

Tell your wife what you said here in your post, and tell her you need her help in managing things. Most women like to help and manage. I had a relapse before Christmas and then a exacerbation every few days. My husband was angry and frustrated about the situation. I figured out showering and mild exercising was setting off the exacerbations. My husband told me he was frustrated because there was nothing he could do to help. When I told him about my plan to get better he calmed down. I know your situation is different but communication is the key. Potter
