And the third step is to look for ways to make room for MS in your personal and professional relationships without giving it more time, attention, and energy than it really needs.
The next step is to decide whom you want to tell about the MS and what you want them to understand about it.
I want to be better informed about the illness & how it's affecting him. I have been with my wonderful man for two years now, but he is afraid of marrying me and becoming a burden. it's a reasonable feeling he has of being a burden on you. we will never truly be able to comprehend as a woman what it's like for a man to face losing his masculinity and being dependent on the woman in his life. The advice, stories and experiences here are priceless and what I needed to hear. Our personalities are a matchmade in heaven and when we look into each others eyes--the realness we have and connection we share is indescribable.
He is fiercely independent, which rocks, but I want to be able to support him when/if that time comes. I have been dating a wonderful man who was diagnosed with MS in 2001..major relapses, just minor things coming up here and now... Most men would rather face a life time alone than being a burden in yours. make the commitment and don't let him push you out... I recently fell in love with a man who confessed to me that he's been diagnosed with MS five years ago. I've been in love before, but nothing compared to the love and connection I have with him And just go figure--my dream man has an illness (which in my eyes ironically enough, if you were to know me, shows him to be even more perfect for me). Pretty much, finding eachother made me a true believer that there is a GOD (if you can relate to where I'm coming from). So Im pretty experienced in taking care of people with illnesses.
He works very hard at work everyday to support us and I take care of the house. But once you fall in love--not to mention fall pretty deep into it--how do you back out?!
We don't have any kids yet and I am really looking into that with this problem too. So I admire the women who take care of their men with disabilities and hold the fort down.
