Hi caligirl82! My mom is going through this same issue and is trying to receive help for my dad at home as she continues to work full time to care for my dad. Have you had any luck?

My mom suffers from not only MS, but Mitochondrial Disease and developed optic nuritus. These health problems will take time to effect them, but we'll have them around and be able to comfort each other. Find the good parts, and down drown in misery, that's the last thing our moms want to see

Ever since I was young, my mom has been affected with MS. Seeing her suffer, yet persevere every day is difficult. Some day will be gut wrenching, some will be breathtakingly fun with them. I've been told to look a the positive, and it's very difficult to do when all I see is the negatives, but our mothers are still here with us, still supporting us, and we can be there for them. It's not easy, especially alone. Don't get into the habit I'm currently trying to escape of burying​ our feelings about this.

Hi.  My name is Vicki.  My mom, who is one of my best friends in the world, was diagnosed yesterday with MS.  I really don't know how to feel about this.  I am relieved that it wasn't one of the 10,000 other horrific things I had conjured up in my mind to cause her inability to walk without a cane, her concentration and memory issues, her extreme fatigue, and her falling spells, but I'm also scared to death.  I don't know, yet, what this will mean for her future or mine and how this will affect my family.  I don't know whether I have to worry that I will develop MS.  I don't know if there are treaments that will help her regain her ability to walk and control her fatigue and give her back some quality of life.  The neurologist was not yet able to determine what type of MS she has, as he feels that, despite the severity of her symptoms, she is still in the early phases of the disease.  That terrifies me - as severe as her symptoms are now, she is early in the disease?  Does that mean that this will only get a great deal worse?  I'm terrified that she'll develop lesions elsewhere and will lose her inability to see, speak, swallow, etc.  I'm just...terrified.  I just had to tell someone because I'm having to be strong for her and the rest of my family right now and don't want to burden them with my terror.  I'm staying positive for her, but inside, I feel only anxiety and sadness.  I just needed to reach out to someone that understands what I'm going through.Thank you for listening/reading and I will pray for your families as they deal with this disease too.
