im 27 year old female and was dx about 18 months ago…
i am currently in a relationship but am deeply unhappy. We have been together for 7 years.
We have had our good times don’t get me wrong but I know now he’s not the guy for me.
Of course he’s been by my side since dx but there are so many complications in r relationship,one of them being he’s a workaholic and frankly I believe money obsessed. Everything is about money with him and it’s effecting r relationship so much…
He is also 16 years older than me which never use to be a problem but I think now the age gap ois def showing and obviously now bing dx with ms I want to do as much as I can while I still can but getting him to plan anything is near impossible. He promised me a holiday since I was dx and it has still never happened.
he also wants to eventually move home to Ireland where he is from soon however I wudnt want that now as my life is so restricted. My family and friends here and just cudnt be that far away and isolated. He knows this and understands but still wants to go.Also he now doesn’t want children.
so really what is the point. I’ve tried to make things work and we’ve had breaks and always ended up back together but part of me thinks it becUse I’m scared to be alone and being with someone for so long u forget what it’s like on ur own.
but even though he’s there I’ve never felt more alone in my whole life… I really hope there is someone else out there for me but worry no one will accept me with ms.
i don’t have a problem getting fellas attention when out with friends but know once I mention ms they will prob run a mile.
I’m already having major problems with my legs and can’t walk far or do much on my feet so everything I do is so planned… Just don’t know if any guys would want this. It’s so scary being in this position and wondered how others have coped?
My question is really about meeting someone when you have this awful disease… Can it happen?will it? Or could I be alone forever?
