Stress and MS
Upon my diagnosis in 2004, my mom couldn't handle it. We quit talking for 7 years. We started talking again back in September 2015 due to the death of my aunt.
I was a calm person, but of course, with elderly parents (one who has dementia, my dad); and a narcissistic sister, my stress level went through the roof. I actually had to tell them to stay away for a week.
Anyway, my point is, stress will cause a relapse, I went through 4 in 2 months after that.
Don't be afraid to tell people when you need your space. After all, if you don't take care of you, who will?!
Do you celebrate your MS Anniversary?
