Yeah @shelley44, I’m so sorry for your loss. My sibling died very suddenly at the very end of 2016 and I started working on their house and belongings, and in the very first part of 2018 was DX. I see it as linked, but that the DX probably would have happened anyway. Take care of yourself – sending peaceful thoughts to you.

@shelley44 My stepdad passed in Oct ’13. I had a massive relapse that Christmas (then undiagnosed, only hingsight made me see it for what it was) and I was Dx in May ’14 after another pretty severe relapse. I didn’t see the two as linked until now. I think I would have been Dx with or without my stepdads passing as thinking back I did have a smaller relapse in September ’12 which lasted a few months. I think maybe the emotional trauma was too much for my body which manifested as a relapse.

I had my first proper symptom before my mum died in 1998. Thinking back there were varying symptoms before that. But I contribute my progression to SPMS directly to the grief I went through when a pet died. I know this may sound silly to some but there was a long story attached to that stray cat who we took in and loved for 3 years. The way the vets treated her and us was unsympathetic. After her death I sunk into a deep depression and stopped eating. Of course I had to go back to work and life had to go on. I had a husband, son and another cat to care for but I know that my symptoms worsened from that point and never recovered.

It’s just awful what we go thru with death r trauma and the way our body reacts to it ..I had actually taught I coped well but obviously my insides where telling a different story ..
Our boxer dog age 12 passed in June I actually never cried as much not even when my parents died as horrible as it sounds .. I’m just letting it out as i bottled it all in with my parents ..better out than in now i am doing …
Keep well guys xx
