Hi. I’m new here - husband to relatively newly diagnosed MSer (less than a year but we suspected for some time). She’s off work and probably not going back (not to that job anyway). Starting Lemtrada soon after relapsing on previous meds (which wasn’t fun).
If I had a question I guess it would be how to help her without making it obvious? Initially I simply took over everything - literally - so she could take it easy, but especially over Christmas this became too obvious to her and she started feeling stressed and guilty that I was doing ‘too much’ which of course didn’t help. While I do work full time I have a flexible job, love cooking (always did it anyway for her and the two boys), worked out that using the washing machine really ain’t that tough (thank you tumble drier though!), and no one is their right mind dusts the house these days any way (do they? Don’t answer…). She is utterly fantastic, susceptible to a touch of cog fog (I’ve been reading endless blogs and autobiographies so hey, I’m down with the lingo), bit creaky and wobbly at times of course - nothing that will surprise you people; so, any tips?
No worries if not, just wanted to say hello and thank you for this forum - while I’ve not posted before I have been very busy reading, and it’s very helpful though one does need a tissue or two at times while reading!
