I've had ms now for 22 years now. Husband #1 beat me, I left him. I married husband #2 for safety. He cheated on me. I left him. Husband #3, I married for all the right reasons. Love, respect, friendship, honesty, loyalty. never once thought about him needing courage. I've got more courage in my big toe than he will ever have. Now when I actually get up the nerve to tell him of my invincible ms problems, I feel like I've waisted my time. 20 minutes after our discussion, I's like I never even said a word. I'm still pushed to extremes. I am pushed by him, and his son constantly to do things other than rest and possibly recoupe. I feel like I' on a deserted island all alone with my ms. Just because I look normal, doesn't mean I am. I once fought ms all alone for 17 years, and after dealing with 3 very ignorant men in my life, I'm ready to face the rest of my life in secracy with ms alone again. Heaven forbid if my fuband gets a hangnail tho. The world is coming to an end.View Thread
