Just one of the bad days

I don’t know what to post. I’m in such pain, but I’m sure others have had worse. I’ve got all all sorts of stuff messing with my head. In the last year I became symptomatic with MS, My Wife left me and filed for divorce, then my Dad dies, now as the date grows near for the divorce to be final, I find out she got an award from Molly’s Angels for being a volunteer in home caregiver. From my chest down the skin burns and it’s hard to walk because my balance is off and then from the neck to my fingertips the electricity is on an I can barely hold on to anything. The MRI’s show swelling on the spinal chord in the mid back and on the neck that are causing the pain. I don’t know if anyone will read this. It’s just a bad day.

I’ve read it. I feel like anything I saw will be paltry and hollow but someone has definitely read this.

Hi @tombrown rant all you like, that’s one of the things we’re here for. We all have days where everything is going wrong. Relationships, finances, medical mayhem, authoritarian awkwardness etc., so don’t feel bad about it. Tomorrow is another day, onwards and upwards.πŸ‘πŸ₯ŠπŸ‘‚

@tombrown , you’ve had one helluva year. With all that going on, it’s not surprising that your body has had trouble managing it all for you.

Do keep talking to your Doctor/Neuro about the pain that you’re experiencing. There are meds that can help, but it does take time to find the one that works for you, and at what dose.

The inflammation identified in your neck and spine is indicative of current MS activity. A short course of high dosage Steroids is the usual medical response. Has this been mentioned at all?

Hello @tombrown. You will look back on this period of time as being a dirty dark hole. But the other side of that, is that you are beginning to look at ways to climb out, starting with posting on here. Believe me, we all have dark, bad days. But we all have better days, and good days and you will to. This is a real turning point in your life, and you now need to install some positives. I am truly sorry that the ironically-titled homecare wife has abandoned you and that you lost your dad. But, it’s all up from here, but you have to steer it that way. Stay strong dude, and keep tuning in on here for support x

hey @stumbler,

Thanks for the encouraging words. The Dr’s really haven’t suggested steroids, I don’t like them anyway. The meds they give for pain are a joke, I’ve moved on to the CBDs. Works better than anything they have. Safer too. Cool!
