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.

  1. Wow, that was so sweet. And so true.
    I would not be where I am today (i.e. MS stabilized and coping well) if it were not for my Michael. There should be a special medal for these supportive men in our lives.

    So true. Matt and I had a rocky start with all this but now I don’t know how I could do it without him. He is so helpful and always there for me.

  3. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without my Gail.She makes everything etter, doable and possible for me. With her aand because of her, I have learned a lot about gratitude and for me, thyat is the key to happiness, regardless of circumstances. I don’t think tht we could ever praise our partners enough. Thanks for bringing it up.
