My name is Bruce and I am 45 years old.
I’ve just been diagnosed with RRMS. I’ve seen the consultants and the diagnosis certainly explains the symptoms I have had the past few years if not longer.
I feel life is on hold and is in total freefall, out of control…
No one can tell me how this will progress.
All i have going through my mind is how will I cope, how will I manage to finish paying the mortgage, get my daughter through University, even when will i get to the point of being a burden to my wife and daughter.
This probably all sounds so stupid but not knowing how fast this might progress or how much longer I can work, walk, how can I plan for the future. Plan for the security of the ones I love.
I know that I only have RRMS and not the more serious conditions but still…
If there is anyone out there that can give me any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
