MS and schizophrenia coexisting

Hi,
I have both multiple sclerosis and schizophrenia.
I am disabled I have the paper work and everything. Lmao.

Basically I go from falling over cause I went down a stair wrong with my numb weak right leg, to panicking because I can hear in my head a stranger is thinking negative things about me.

Then I go from getting deep scratches on my very numb weak and shakey left arm and not noticing cause I can’t feel it to being terrified that the people that watch me from outside the windows at night have poisoned my drinks.

I go from having nerve pains in my lower back down my left leg when I try to walk that drop me to panicking someone’s breaking into the house in the middle of the night to kidnap my do or my kids..

I hate living with these two conditions. I feel it’s unfair that I got landed with two major conditions at once and I’ve had them since I was 11.

I wish I could go down deep stairs without falling on my face and I wish I could walk into the kitchen at night without being scared someone’s watching me from outside the window.

Hit me up if you too are living with coexisting conditions!!!

Hi @sarah_g_bowley and welcome.

I can’t quite imagine living with two conditions as you do. You have my sympathy. Stay strong.
