My Child

My youngest daughter aka my sidekick was diagnosed about 8 years ago. She is a amazing person, mother of two children. To see her going through this is so hard. I try to be there for her as much as possible but just feel there is more I could do just don’t know what that is. Any thoughts??

    Hi sueschumacher! First off, I am so sorry your daughter has been diagnosed with MS. It is definitely a condition that affects not just and individual, but also the people that love them. Secondly, I think it’s great that you are trying to support and love your daughter in the best way possible. If you haven’t already, you may ask your daughter about the best ways to help her. Many of our members stress that they like to be as independent as possible and really don’t like asking for help. I thought you might like this article written from the perspective of a person with MS, including the comments following the piece — https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/asking-for-and-accepting-help/. Here’s another article from a married couple dealing with MS — https://multiplesclerosis.net/caregiver/four-keys-succeed-relationships/.

    Again, I think it’s wonderful that you are looking for new ways to help your daughter.

    Thank you for reaching out! Best, Erin, MultipleSclerosis.net Team Member.
