hi been diagnosed with ms now as ive had diabetes for over 19yrs but now im wheelchair bound and stuck in the house, phone call from ms nurse was told i will not be put on steriods cos i will die from it, but surely dying is better than being stuck in a wheelchair with no life at all like being able to go into garden and see the flowers... the conustant was gonna put me on steriods but now he wont, i know the risks of taking steriods with diabetes and is willing to take them cos all i have to do is up my insulin which i inect twice a day anyway and suggas are aways low which is good for me but to no i wont be getting the steriods now is starting to make me depressed and i wont take tablets for depression so why has the consultant decided not to give me steriods now when he said i would be getting them. now im in two minds to go to the tv crew and put in a compalint about the consultant............... i wopuld rather die than live a life stuck in a chair that i cant get out off. i even sleep sat in the chair and ive forgotton what a bed looks or feels like and its been 4 months since diagnosed with ms but ive apparently had it over 8 yrs but then i could walk but not now

Hi. I read your post and felt compelled to respond. I myself am not permanently wheelchair bound but almost there. I am however homebound with very limited standing ability. As my MS progresses it is so difficult to find the strength needed to go the next level of disability but I can tell you to stay strong, use whatever has gotten you through in the past to find some joy in everyday life. I know the pain of isolation and the fear as your body continues to decline but there is always some glimmer of hope to each day. I don't know what to offer as far as the steroid situation but I just wanted you to know that I will be thinking of you and praying for you during this difficult time. Peace to you.
