    So sorry to hear about this. I’m a 55 year old father of four everything seems to make me cry these days. I have a loving wife and kids and I’m very blessed. However, some days that’s not enough. Seek help if you can and KNIW that your not alone.

    Hi, Samoen I’m going to be 62 next month and I’m now in secondary progressive mode. I also miss my old self and the fun things that I use to be able to do with no problem. I’m not in a chair and the only caregiver is my husband Al. I get mad and sad and I grieve for the things that I have lost. I grieve mostly for my oldest son Matt who was DX 2010. He has RRMS and is still getting over his last stint in the hospital. This last time really took a lot outta him and I can hear it in his voice when he calls me. We live 7 hours away by car, so we have face time on skype and we text and call. I’m a good listener and would love to hear from you if you would want to vent, scream or yell. Remember you are not alone and to always take care of you.
