Next Thursday, I am participating in a Tysabri teleconference about MS and Relationships. I have blogged about how Tysabri has changed the course of my disease. I have blogged about diet and exercise making me feel healthier and I have talked about reducing stress and alternative therapies but I rarely talk about how my strong relationship impacts my MS.
The support of my friends and family is so great but the CONSTANT, daily, minute by minute, relentless support of my husband Mark is the one part of My MS fight that I don’t think I could live without. I know it sounds dramatic but he does so much for me and has walked with me throughout this journey so patiently that I can’t imagine going it alone.
During my prep call for my Tysabri teleconference, I was going through my presentation and while I didn’t have any problem writing it, I couldn’t speak the words without crying. Mark and I are still figuring out the answers but I know that he is there for me even when I don’t express how I am feeling or what I need. Asking for help and understanding has always been the tough part for me. I realized in writing this presentation though, that he NEEDS to help me as much as I NEED him to help.
Thanks for being there babe.
I will post the presentation next Thursday.
