So fed up and just need a sounding board!

Well, its been 14 months since my diagnosis and I feel no better for it except for the fact at least I now know I'm not going crazy.

Every day is such a struggle and for the most part I can put on a smile and no-one knows any different. I really try to be very positive with it all but some days I just want to scream and scream, like today!!

Ive had symptoms for the last six years but for the last two years its been every day with something. I can honestly say "I can't remember the last day I was symptom free". For two weeks solid now I have had this horrible ache in my hands, which makes it hard at times to lift anything heavy or even turn the car steering wheel. I'm not even sure if this has anything to do with the MS and I feel its a waist of time going to the GP as they never know anything anyway. I am however waiting for a call from the MS nurse, so maybe I'll get some answers from her.

Don't I sound like a real moan? I know I shouldn't complain, when you see so much pain and misery around the world but today just seem to be a me day, Sorry!

Anyone have horrible mood swing? Some days I'll be fine one minute then the next you can't look at me. I'm even scared to look at myself in the mirror sometimes. Oh, boy is this a day for moaning or what? I better go now as I think I could go on for hours yet , maybe some house work will do the job..

Thanks for listening.xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Re: So fed up and just need a sounding board!

My mom's cousin who has had MS for 20 years has terrible mood swings.

I have not had a dx yet, but I do not suffer from any mood swing problems. I only get upset on my really bad days when I have to lean on my family to do everything that needs to be done. Sometimes, I feel like they are upset with me and then I will cry.

Re: So fed up and just need a sounding board!

I'm not dx yet either,getting closer.I have had wild mood swings,they come and go.They are not pleasant.
We all have our lousy days and need to vent and scream.Some days I scream more than I vent and the dog even hides.
I have not had a symptom free day in 18 months ,it's frustating.Usually my legs give me a hard time.I keep moving,some days slower than others.
Every now and then we need to moan and complain.I tell my family its theraputic.I don't think they beleive me.
Hang in there.
Prayers to you
Toni

Re: So fed up and just need a sounding board!

Mood swings yep,
crying all the time yep,
feeling sorry for me yep,
realizing that I was depressed yep,
getting Zoloft...... priceless

Are you taking any Antidepressant? Depression is a MS symptom and taking Zoloft evens everything out for me.

Donnalynne,Toni, and Lest. I felt exactly like all of you, it was like,
Enough Aready!!
Then I learned to listen to my body, and do what it wants to do or not want to do, and it sucks, but this keeps ME in control and not the MS.

The whole disease is just crazy, please don't let it get you down, and please come and vent anytime you want. I try to be positive too, so let me be the one to cheer you all up!

Take time for you, we all need to do that everyday, even if it is a few minutes, just sit and zone out to Hawaii

Today is almost over and tomorrow will be better

Re: So fed up and just need a sounding board!

Thanks guys for your input. I don't feel so bad today (so far).

StephanieAnne, no I'm not on any antidepressants. I have been on them a couple of times in the past and for quite some time. The last time, I promised myself never again.

I hope you are all doing well and thanks again for the chat, it always helps to hear your not alone, as sad as that is.

Donnalynne
