Hi i am ppms. when i lost my husband i lost my will to live to be honest. I had visitors to chear me up. Just having this disease can make you feel isolated and alone i wrote a blog about it. I find blogging gives me a door to meeting others with chronic illnesses too. An indoors support group.
When i moved to sheltered my GP felt it would be safer for me, and less work, I am never alone, and sometimes i just wish for peace and quiet lol.
Why not join the MS society, ring them and they can advise you of your local groups. Join facebook and NEXTDOOR as you can find out what is going on in your local area.
ring your local adult social services and ask for an assessment if you havent had one, for direct payments. I had a care worker well a personal assistant and she would come and help me and take me out.
even in my little town we have tai chi classes. in our community club.
there is always something going on i wouldnt know about it if i didnt belong to facebook local groups.
its amazing how many people are living isolated lives in the area who you could perhaps meet.
I too am like space jacket i have a mobility scooter and take my doglet out on it. you can buy them second hand cheap but its my savior believe me. One of my male new friends from sheltered has a Travesco covered one and he goes to pub everyday in it lol. He has some health issues not sure what they are, but finds his friends there in the pub. another guy with MS he has a scooter is out everyday chatting in local cafes or the pub.
he would be on his own otherwise.
Your never along if you have Internet. But i know how you feel i felt like that when i was in transistion from loosing my hubby to moving and selling my house. It wasnt a good place to be.
I hope you feel better today. I would ring MS society in your area and find out if there are groups and adult social services, and aged uk if your in that age bracket. xxx
