Hello!

I’m new here, I’m 30 and have had MS for ten years, it started off as aggressive RRMS, now SPMS. I have been unable to work for the past 5 years. My friends are meeting the usual milestones in life, promotions, getting married, having babies, I’m just stuck in the same spot. I can’t help but feel life is just passing me by.

Hi I’m new on here too. Must be devestating watching ur friends meet their goals and milestones. We all need goals to reach for. It’s important to move towards something and have a purpose. It’s just finding yours and try to stop comparing. Not easy I’m sure x

This is very true. It never used to get to me much, I just got on with life as best I could, but I’m really struggling now. My mobility isn’t great, I need to use a wheelchair/scooter, so it limits my capabilities.

What do u enjoy? When times goes by when ur doing this and ur so consumed that u don’t notice? Do more of what you like. Reach out to your friends and family x

I dunno to be honest, I’ve not managed to find new interests. I have good family and good friends but I feel like a burden as when I have plans with my friends we’ve got to do everything so differently because of me on the scooter, bladder trouble etc, and I know they don’t mind but it just makes me feel sh*t.
