Thank you Gretchen and Rhonda for your quick response. At least having this forum to come into helps me relate to others and I dont feel so isolated. I have been married for almost 29 years to my hubby and he normally is supportive, but I think he is just tired of hearing about it. I cant help but talk about it becasue it is all so new to me.
I like BOTH of your advise and I am going to take it. Yesterday while having lunch with my daughter in law and her Mom ( whose Mom has the MS)...my daughter in laws Mom said." oh you dont need thoses meds, you'll lose all your hair! I told her that thats not true at all. Some people experiance slight thinning. But, geese, they both had to tell me how I am going to feel and how my futurw will be with MS. I just changed the subject. Period. I will NOT discuss anything further with them at all. Period.
As for my husband, Gretchen I am going to talk to him tonight. I don't know how he will respond. But I will let him know IF he is planning on going with me next Monday he has to at least watch the CD the MS Society sent me, or I don't want him there. AND...if he wont watch the CD, I will discuss things with the Doctor reguarding his lack of support.
My Mother is a retired RN, and I know she would go with me. It is just so hurtful that I feel I am not being takin seriously. I am not one to complain, usually I am the one taking care of everyone else.
I also recognize I need to put this matter in Gods hands and pray about it, which I haven't done. Duh! I thank you gals for your support and kindness.
For now, I am just going to lean on this foru, for my support until I can better understand it all and speack with my Doctor next week. I'll let you both know how it turns out.Hugs~Katie
