My partner was diagnosed about 15 years ago, but has not been bad until the past year or so. Right now his feet hurt so much he can hardly walk. “Right now I don’t care if I live ’til tomorrow” is what I heard this morning. I don’t even know if it’s the MS. He thinks it’s gout. (a whole other issue. He has managed kidney disease. So taking medicines orally is not good for him.)
Everything I read online is so “up” and optimistic it makes me crazy. He doesn’t trust any doctors because they don’t do anything (we’ve had really bad experiences in many areas). We’re in the US. I’m supposed to go away in a couple weeks to help my sister who is having a knee replacement. Now I’m afraid to leave!
