Hi Meg-Jaxx,As a person with MS for over 10 years, I can tell you that you are not alone in your situation. I too have experienced worsening symptoms with stable MRI’s, this can happen for a number of reasons, stress being one of them. The one thing that has helped me was to keep reminding myself that at least the disease is not progressing as far as new symptoms go. I encourage you to keep your doctor informed as this will help him/her to decide on the best course of action to help stabilize your current symptoms. A friend of mine with two teenaged boys once said, “I will always feel a measure of guilt that I’m not the Mom I wanted to be for my children, but every day I tell them how much I love them and how proud I am of them.”  To help make up for the things she can’t do with her children, the family created “family togetherness night” they choose various activities like watching a movie, playing board games or even just sitting together and talking. This way they have a chance to have quality time together. Just an idea that I thought I would share. ;)Best,Nicole

Meg, Guilt is usually a sign of wrong doing. Are you showing your children you love them? By giving them good reasons to feel self respect and self worth. Are you spending quality time with them? Watching their actions and instructing them about what they are doing correctly. Are you paying attention when they speak with you? Hearing what they are saying and seeing what they are feeling. Are you teaching them the values you hold dear? Showing them by example, how to treat others, their persons, personal belongings as well as others. ​Being the mom you want to be, has nothing to do with being a good mom. Treasured moments, memories of a lifetime are those minutes spent being the center of someone's world, filled with happiness and love. All children want and need is love. If you are showing them they are wanted and loved then you are being a mom I wish I had had. maria
