I know u'r feeling overwhelmed right now, but i believe this will get better for u. At first my fatigue was so absolutely consuming that i felt surly will lose everything, but i got past that. I have three little girls, 12, 9, 8, and they are a big handful. My husband works full time and i stay home (thank goodness) and even still with being home all day i couldn't manage to take care of things as they needed to be. In time, and with help from my docs thru med, i did get past it. Now my fatigue is MUCH better...not the ms fatigue that u hear about
on a daily basis. There are bad days to be sure, but overall i'm near where i was...quite near...before i started to have any symptoms at all. MANY MANY people work full time jobs and care for homes with children and cope with ms. How do they do it?? I don't know...to me they're heros...but they do and u will do as well too. U'r doc can give u meds to help with fatigue...Provigil is a good one...and that should help. If u don't have an appt scheduled soon, call him. Get him to either call something in for u to try or push them to get u in to see him. As for the dogs, can u call someone to help u with them for now? Is there a neighbor or other person who is nearby enuf to give them a walk at least once a day until u can get back to u'rself? If neither of these is an option or if u really feel u need more help than that, what about
boarding them at the local vet for a few weeks? Hang in there....as tough as that is right now...and u WILL get thru this.
