I’ve just been through a rough 6 months, in fact one of the worst periods of my life. The strange thing was I was feeling good MS wise, things were stable and I was enjoying life. It started at work, where they decided to medically redeploy me to another role. I was gutted, I loved my job and worked hard to get there. I loved all the people in my team and I really got to help people and I was amazing at my job (well this is my story lol). Then my husband had what can only be described as some sort or meltdown and completely out of the blue at a friends party told me he was leaving me, that he couldn’t do it anymore, he couldn’t deal with the MS any more, he couldn’t make me better and that he had to go. I was in complete shock And heartbroken.
Then I’ve had family issues, My Mum never calls anymore, if I try and talk to her about my MS she just doesn’t want to hear it, I guess she can’t handle it either. My Dad has passed away and this distance with my Mum makes me miss him more.
Over Christmas my husband ended up very ill himself, we never really knew at first how serious his condition was. But thankfully he has been lucky and has made a fully recovery.
Everything around me was falling apart! I was physically and emotionally exhausted. It did begin to affect my health and I experienced a lot of residual symptoms, it made me angry as these were all situations that I had no control over, but here they were controlling me.
I don’t know how but little my little I have worked through these issues for myself in that I’m handling it. My husband and I are still together which is great as I know from here the pressure and strain MS puts on any relationship. I’m starting to realise that I can’t control some situations and I guess you just need to accept somethings and make the best you can of things. Things are different for me now, time will tell if it’s a good different or not.
I guess I just wanted to share this as I’m feeling much more like me again and I know there will be others out there having a rough time, so I just wanted to say hang in there as things can get better. I’m approaching my 3 year ms anniversary and although I still get scared, I know there is help out there!
Hugs to you all 🤗
