Unhappy i need help think im going mad

Hi all,

I dont really know where to start but here goes i was diagnosed with ms 2yrs ago, i was devastated at first but then thought to myself "you have dealt with everything else life as thrown at you, you will cope" so i managed to carry on i had a couple of relapses which were due to either cold or hot weather or stress. Up until now i thought i was managing but the last couple of months my self esteem is rock bottom, i keep causing arguments with my partner of 8yrs because my brain is convinced he is more interested in any other woman whether on the tv (which i know is ridiculous), or just out shopping. I try to stop myself from saying anything but it just burns in my stomach until i cannot control it anymore and flare up. He keeps saying he loves me and does not want anyone else but i cannot get around this. I went to stay with my parents for 2wks and when i came back i found out he had been onto pornography sites even though he has photos of me. I dont know what to do im driving myself insane.

Has anyone ever been in this situation or if not can anyone please help i am desperate.

Thanks all xx

Re: i need help think im going mad

Rosie, although what you are dealing with is NOT MS related, relationship and self esteem are often affected by someone with MS. I suggest you find someone professional to talk to about your issues- there are doctors out there who specialize ini chronic diseases and relationship issues. Its possible both you and your partner would benefit from a consultation.
You might find more advice on the relationship issues board here at Healthboards? Just a suggestion- I know Ive found help there before.
Good luck.
