Is This a Relapse? A Boyfriend’s Perspective

It can be hard enough for someone with MS to determine whether or not they’re experiencing the worsening symptoms that indicate a relapse. A loved one looking in from the outside might find it much more challenging, and every little symptom might seem like a red flag.

    Good afternoon, understand wanting to give up I have felt that way myself. Sometimes we need to focus on what is good in our lives. For me some form of exercise helps me. Walking, swimming, yoga. Any kind of movement helps me, can even be done sitting in a chair. Speaking to a Counselor can be helpful. A medical Nurse Practitioner or medical Doctor can prescribe medicine that helps. Remember you are not alone, Best Wishes Susan.

    I too have been very depressed lately and wanting to give up. It is going through all this crap all the time and not being able to do this or that. Feeling like I have missed a lot in my life. I keep getting the suggestion that I see a psychiatrist. I really don’t know about talking to a psychiatrist, I am so shy sometimes.

    @victerglass44, It’s good that you reached out and expressed your feelings. I’m so sorry that you’ve been struggling lately with depression. Often it just can’t be helped. Giving up can mean deciding to ride the wave until it subsides, or seeking a self-destructive solution. I wish you would tell me what giving up means for you. There are so many ways we can heal with the help of others. Please let us help. Thinking of you, Kim, moderator
