My boyfriend was diagnosed with MS aged 22, he will be 30 in January. We’ve been together for a year and a half and I’ve known about his MS from the start. I’ve always fully supported him and it’s never put me off him.
Sometimes I feel like he tries to push me away. He’s recently talked about not being sure if he can be ‘fully committed’ to the relationship even after we’ve been together for a year and a half. I think he also puts pressure on himself to make sure that this is the right relationship because he’s scared about what affect MS will have on him in the future and he doesn’t want to waste time.
I find it upsetting because I really love him and I’ve always accepted that MS will be a part of our lives.
Does anyone have any tips about how I can reassure him? Or is there anyone who has MS who can relate to possibly over analysing relationships because you’re conscious of trying to live the best life?
Any advice would be so appreciated.
