As a carer for someone with MS, it is easy to feel insignificant, but I truly believe we are the unsung heroes. Despite everything seemingly falling apart around us at times, we must keep things going.
When my partner was first diagnosed with MS, she seemed happy with the diagnosis as we finally knew what was wrong with her. I was worried about the future, but she assured me that her case would be manageable. But we soon found out that MS can progress and that relapses can hit hard, often unexpectedly.
Since beginning to care for my partner I now do my best to seize every second of every day that we have as a family. I seize the day because I’m happy we’re together and alive, and I want to be prepared for whatever the future will bring.
