I have never posted on here, but lurk occasionally. My mum has had MS since I was very young, I think around 2003? I am 21 now, and I am struggling so much with my caring responsibilities. My mum will not get help elsewhere, and it is extremely infuriating.
She had a fall this weekend and is refusing to go to the hospital, despite bashing her head badly. I work full-time and study, and I just can’t cope anymore. I am the only close family that she has.
The issue is, I have recently been given an offer to study at one of the top universities in the country and I am desperate to go. However, I can’t just leave my mum… is there any hope of a future when caring for someone with MS? Especially when they are so stubborn? I want to run away so badly, and live a ‘normal’ life.
