Thankful for any guidance

I would like to say that you all are extremely strong! My son was born in the beginning of the year 2018 and when I was three months pregnant his dad was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. He has not stopped working yet he has been told he has many many lesions in his back and in his spine. And apparently a line running through his middle of his back and they say that he should not be walking. He works every single day very hard at his moving company business that he owns. He is an inspiration! I would like to learn how to cope and deal with his mood swings and his ways of life that are extremely altering. It is so so very hard to see him going downhill and being so stubborn to not allow it to happen. Thank you

@emstone , a healthy, balanced diet and a healthy, balanced lifestyle are important. As is avoiding, or effectively managing stress.

As you now know from the comment, “he shouldn’t be walking”, nothing about MS is straightforward or black and white. There are still too many unknowns.

So, be optimistic. Don’t let your hubby over-do things. And get on and live your lives. 😉

@emstone, mood swings are tricky. My husband had them – my advice would be, if you can, ‘ go with the flow’…. MSers are all different, all at different stages so it’s not surprising if we get mood swings. Especially men, who see themselves as ‘the bread winner’, the supporter of the family etc (when there’s a child or children). I think it’s really difficult for them knowing they aren’t the man they used to be. And as @stumbler says enjoy your lives😊
