My wife was diagnosed with MS 21 years ago, six years before we were married. So I knew what I was getting into but in truth I was not prepared for the rapid progression. Just 4 short years into our marriage she became totally disabled and everything changed. Her relapses were horrible and long lasting.
The physical part of the marriage stopped although the love never will. As her caregiver, my question to all is, how do you handle to severe mood swings this causes? She is happy one moment and literally will start crying the next. Now I am old school Italian and very family oriented but this is starting to have an effect on me as I am always questioning whether or not I did something wrong or if I caused the crying.
Does listening to music help lower the severity of your stress or MS symptoms?
