My mum who is 52, was diagnosed with MS a year ago. I whipped her to A&E after her GP thought she had had a stroke. She was in hospital 2 weeks before the finally decided to test for MS and then a further 3 weeks for the results and physio.
The thing is with her and I have noticed more over the last few weeks, that she is getting really nasty (in everything she says) and since her diagnosis she is regressing back to being a child.
Mum hasn’t tried to fight and has instead laid down and just let the MS take over (My boss’s mum who is 10 - 15 years older than my mum, has MS but you wouldn’t think it to look at her).
She sits in her chair all day, I go and see her on my way home from work, I leave after about 45 minutes to go and pick my kids up from school, and she takes herself off to bed. Now I get that she’s probably tired in the afternoon, but she doesn’t do anything or go anywhere. She won’t even come to my house for tea.
I honstly don’t know what to do to help her and my poor dad is trying his best with her too but it’s almost like she has given up.
