My name is Erin and my mom has had MS since I was born. I'm 30 years old; she's had it for 30 years. I am honestly at a point right now that I don't know what to do anymore to help her. She is walking with a walker but can only walk a little distance before she is either dragging her feet or becoming tired. She has pretty severe tremors that have taken her hand writing away, and she can't even feed herself. I moved her into assisted living in May of 2016. She has been there over a year now. I'm happy that there is always someone there if she falls or needs help. What I have noticed though for the past several months is that she has a panic attack almost everyday at the same time. She is on new meds with a psychiatrist, but she seems to be getting so much worse. She will call me everyday panicking and then needs help calming down. The last 2 days she has said to me that she wants to give up. (Her sister, my aunt, died from having MS and gave up as well). I have told her that she is going to fight through this and that I am always there for her....meanwhile, it is absolutely tearing me apart inside with how much she is suffering.
Has anyone out there ever know of anyone or who have experienced these types of psychiatric issues? I am in desperate need of any advise or help.
Many thanks and love to all of you out there. ✌🏽💜
