@nutshell88 . My dad is 85 and is as supportive as he can be. I’m trying to find support groups in my area but since I dont drive at night and work during the day, no luck yet

@janetlynn , we have to balance our resources, so after a day at work, a quiet night is just what the doctor ordered.

How are your weekends?

@janetlynn, I think it must be tough living on you own AND working. I sympathise but given that you can’t drive at night you really have to accept it and be content with your own company and find things to occupy you. I have a live-in carer now since my partner died. Have you looked on shiftms website to see if there are other MSers nearby? Look on YouTube to find a hobby that you might be interested in doing. If I say to my daughter that friends don’t visit as often, she tells me, ‘ People have busy lives’ and if you think about it, they do. So don’t let the MS Beast get you down. We’re all here to listen and help👍🏻😊xx
