I'm finding it really hard to cope. I've felt like this for years, but I've always put it down to being a 'blip' because every so often I find things easier to manage and that there is a point in trying. This normally lasts for a few weeks at most and then I'm back to square 1 where I find it hard to motivate myself to do anything.
I'm tired of pretending to be ok, of trying to hide my ataxic movements, and of feeling self conscious all of the time. There is no-one I can be myself around - I think I used to be a nice person, but now I just feel irritable all of the time.
I'm thinking of asking my neurologist to refer me to a therapist or someone like that (I don't know much about it). I haven't had the guts to join one before, but how helpful are support groups?
