Social connections After being Diagnosed with MS

ms support or Social connections with MS

I don’t know about you, but this is a sensitive topic for me. I have found that in dealing with my own case of Multiple Sclerosis that because my case was so severe at the beginning, I went from being a very socially inactive and a physically active person to someone who was put on the side lines for a while and social interactions just dried up for a period of time. It isn’t like I had a choice in the matter.

The people that I related to very well before my first major ms attack attempted to still be part of my life at first, but they could no longer relate to me. I couldn’t do the things that I was able to do before the problems that I experienced on a daily basis because of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis that I had a very tough time with. My friends mostly evaporated within the first 2 years of me being given the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.

When it’s just One of those days with MS...

Multiple Sclerosis -- How do you “live with it”?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having some days, more recently, where I have really been struggling with having more problems with the bad days because of the symptoms of ms -- where I feel so horrible that it has been much more difficult for me to be even be able to get out of bed (it took me 90 minutes after I first woke up just for me to be able to get out of bed the other day).

What do you do, when it’s just “One of those days with Multiple Sclerosis”?

What do you do on the bad days for you to just to be able to function some?

You know what I mean…when you are battling with the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis and you are having “one of those days”, where it seems like your body is fighting against you instead of working with you, how does this make you feel and what do you do about it?
