MS Ended My Marriage
Last updated: March 2023
After 35 years of marriage my husband divorced me, he said I wasn’t fun anymore. I was being treated for fibromyalgia at the time and the doctor I had just kept throwing opiates at it, never doing an MRI.
I had a lot of symptoms like heat, balance, fatigue, and brain fog. I stopped taking the opiates before the divorce was final. Finally I had a relapse 2 yrs later and was finally diagnosed. From the number of lesions and from when the symptoms started it was decided I had probably had it for almost 10 yrs. So now I just navigate this MS maze alone.
