Re: mental problems from Avonex and alcohol?
i wouldn;t say the alcohol is causing all of that,,, i would say the MS is,, just knowing u have MS and how we feel is enough to make anyone wanna drink and just blow off on ppl. i do know that alcohol and the ABC drugs to not go well on the liver,,, as a matter of fact the drugs are hard on the liver, i have been on 3 diff kinds and have to have my liver checked every couple months,,, so she really needs to quit drinking i for one am scared to even drink anything we have been to friends and out places and ppl will offer to buy me a drink and i say no thnx! and they always wanna know why,,, and that upsets me a bit! i know i have been a bit irritable since i have been diagnosed and am quicker now to jump down someones throat than i was before,, because ppl don;t realize how we feel or what we go thru tioll they go thru it themselves and when i see my sister or someone else taking advantage of something i would love to be able to do, and can;t do it anymore,,,i ream ***, and don;t care if it hurts their feelings or not,,, ur daughter may just be trying to go away in another world all by herself, so she doesn;t have to bother anyone with her problems,,, i feel that way alot,,, but now i am closer to my mom than i ever was! she doesn't look at me weird,, or ask me questions, she seems to know me enough to know when she can talk about it and when to just leave it alone,,, just let ur daughter know that u are there for her if she ever needs anything and try to get her to quit drinking it would be better for her if she did!
