Since 8/17/10, I've gone down hill with my MS, but it has taken a back seat. My husband had a 3 cm brain tumor removed. He was in the VA 124 days. It was cancerous, but not of the brain. But he has them baffled-can't find any...at all.
I stayed tough, I had to. Since he's been home, I'm the care giver, & very frustrated. It was on his right brainstem, & now has to learn everything righthanded. This month, I fell-hard, landed on my head. Huge bump, concussion. It still hurts. I also started having sore hands. Arthritis, also in my knees, after a previous fall. Am starting PT.
I'm 54, married for 9 yrs...(#2). I have 1 son, 28. Awesome family, that has been forced to get closer due to the deaths of my Dad & my 43 yr. old brother within 2 years of cancer. I have secondary progressive MS.BUT It doesn't have ME! I hate it. I also suffer from severe depression & major anxiety-both for a long time. I found a quote..."I'm selfish, impatient, & a little insecure. I make mistakes, am out of control & a little hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst.....you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best". Marlyn Monroe...this just about describes me...but I'm far from selfish. I tend to be a bit thin skinned, & that's due to me not getting over my brothers death. He & I were a duo. I miss him a lot. I've spent more time in the hospital for the mental thing than the MS.
