    So yesterday was a really bad day for me. Two of my major symptoms besides the pain are loss of appetite and severe fatigue. I get to work yesterday and the pain in my back and right leg are unbearable and on top of that I looked as if i was going to pass out at any minute from lack of sleep. Long story short, I had to leave work early yesterday because I just could not function like that. I can say after passing out at home from 2:00 till 5:30 this morning, I do feel a whole lot better today sleep wise, but unfortunately the pain in my neck/back area is horrible. But I must go on.

    Thanks for touching base and sharing your bad day with us...trust me, you are not alone in that. It is my understanding/experience that bad days happen. For me knowing i have MS helps me to be more kind to myself...i am my worse critic and expect too much from myself. I set myself up for disappointment way too often. I have noticed i'm getting a little bit better...and for that i'm grateful. Hang in there and thanks for your post.

    I am sorry to hear about your bad day.  We all seem to, unfortunately, have a lot of bad days.  Tomorrow is another day.  Hang in there, I'll be  hoping that things get better for you.

    Ms unfortunately usually brings more bad days then good. This week I've experienced leg pain prominently & really bad insomnia where I don't get to sleep till like 6 am besides the usual ringing in my ear, fatigue, depression/anxiety, excessive urination & headaches. Our symptoms for the most part are invisible as you know so when we sufferers get these bad days we often feel so alone in our struggle. I wish there was a way to make others more aware of our strife so they may take us more seriously or be more compassionate.

    Although I know I am not alone in this struggle, I do tend to feel as if I am; for example, my fiance is the most understanding person I have ever met in my life, but at the end of the day he doesn't truly understand how I feel. He is just going based off of what I tell him (where the pain is, why im so tired all the time). And I know it kills him inside because he doesn't truly know how to help, and all I tell him is to just be there for me and that's all I could ask of him besides the occasional back massage when its truly out of control.
