I hope nobody minds me asking this question.
I am newly diagnosed, aged 30 and I have a child from a previous relationship.
I always thought I would get married and have more children in time. I was in a serious relationship last year but sadly, the diagnosis pretty much put the nail in the coffin.
I have been thinking about dating again and while I still want to have more children and get married, I also can’t help but feel like maybe I should just stay on my own.
My daughter is 10 now and will be well grown (hopefully) before the MS can take hold. I can’t help but feel it would be unfair of me to subject another person to becoming my carer. Yes, if they love me, they’ll do it. But seeing as I’m single, should I not just accept it as my lot and stay on my own?
I know carers and while they do what they do amazingly well it is done very much out of love for the other person. I can’t help but feel that because I am diagnosed and single that perhaps I should give up on the idea of meeting someone, for their sake moreso than anything else.
I mean no offence and I hope nobody will take it the wrong way. It’s just something I’ve had to give a lot of thought to recently.
