I feel guilt about posting this but am feeling very alone just now. My daughter was diagnosed with MS 3 years ago and is still active and independant, for which I am grateful. How do Mums cope with the emotional side of someone else’s MS and the effect it has on them? I try to stay postive and supportive to my daughter, who lives alone and gets very depressed at times and has constant mood swings. I know I don’t have MS but I feel as if the light has gone out of my life and have been given a life sentence for something I haven’t done. At other times I feel as if I am being punished for something I have done. None of this makes sense and people will say what is your problem - you are not the one with MS, but I am hurting too. I get no support from my family, they just say it is a shame she has MS but there is nothing we can do. How do you deal with something that will have no closure to move on from and will be with you for the rest of your life?
