Hi! I am new to this-I've been diagnosed with MS for about 5 years. I am taking Nuerontin and Baclofen. I will be starting rebif injections after New Year. Besides all the pins and needles and pain-does anyone else get overwhelmed by simple things like having to work and then come home and do all the things that once seemed so easy-then there's the grocery shopping and laundry and at this wonderful time - Christmas shopping. Just thinking about it all makes me so tired and overwhelmed and family doesn't seem to understand that I can't handle it all anymore. Very frustrating!!

Hi jirish,

I am glad you found us and have posted.  You are right.  Having MS makes everyday life tough.  And because a lot of what we experience is invisible, people around us think we are doing just fine.  They don't see or think about the symptoms we manage everyday.  You have to try and explain to your family how you are feeling.  You have to get them on board with helping out more in little ways. 

Good luck with the rebif.
