Hello everyone - My girlfriend was recently diagnosed with MS. It's of course been a complete shock, and she's still reeling. I'm here in the hopes that I can learn ways to help her, recognize symptoms, be supportive, and prepare for whatever is coming. She's a very independent and strong woman, but also very stubborn and often very private. We've had a few discussions, but I know that she's often frightened to tell me how she's feeling - physically and emotionally. If anyone has advice, I'd welcome it - from how to help her without making her feel like a patient, to how to deal with these sudden memory lapses and mood swings. So far, this seems to be in the early stages, but she told me her doctor is concerned with how suddenly the symptoms presented themselves (we' talking months).
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
