Partner just diagnosed with MS

hammiemadhammiemad Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hi my partner has just been diagnosed with MS ever since hes gone to the pub everyday I'm accused of being a control freak if I txt or phone and I get accused of all sorts.
Instead of feeling sympathetic and understanding I feel resentful and cold towards him.
I'm ill myself please can you give me some advice all I want to do is cry.x

    Hi @hammiemad welcome to the community! I am sorry to hear what has been happening. I just want to reassure you that you're safe with us, do you think this is how he is coping with his recent diagnosis?
