Hello again Annie
Yes, I’m married. You and I are a similar age - I’ll be 55 in 2 months. And I got pushed around the shops by my husband this morning too.
When you say ‘managed to stay married’, how long has it been for you (ie the ball & chain)? I met my husband almost 5 years after my MS began although I didn’t find out about the MS until 6 months in to our relationship. We then got married 4 years later. This could be a completely different situation for you?? It’s still a difficult thing, remaining with your husband. He may not have MS, but he still has to live with the beast.
By ‘end stage’ MS, I think that tends to me something maybe worse (yes it might be possible!) than you and maybe me. Have a look at: End stage MS | MS Trust
I’m a full time wheelchair user, can’t walk at all. I have significant bowel and bladder problems and a whole variety of other permanent issues. I’m a long way from end stage though I can see it coming eventually.
You sound a bit (maybe more than a bit) cheesed off with life today. If you want to offload here, feel free. We don’t mind being a sounding board. There’s probably plenty of symptoms some of us will be able to recognise.
