Stepping Away for a while


As some of you have noticed my replies have been few and far between. I am starting to get overwhelmed with all the notifications and writing on everyone's posts. Feeling bad when I miss one. I need to put my energy on myself right now. I am shutting off the notifications and will read occasionally. Especially waiting for kdali baby to come! I am just not coping well with my own MS. I need to rely on my support group here. The ones I can touch and hug and call. My pain is out of control, thanks to the government and them getting the manufacturer to stop making the only med that has worked for me. My anger is crazy and my symptoms are really overwhelming. Two days ago, I lost the feeling in my left leg and arm. Had an MS hug that felt like a heart attack. Or what I can imagine one to feel like. I can't find my joy right now. So please pray for me. I need to find my joy through God's word, my wife and children. I hope you all understand. I will be back soon!

I love you all and will still pray for all the friends I have made here!

  • rlh1974 Of course we understand! I'm so sorry you are feeling so overwhelmed with the MS right now. It's hard to think straight with pain, much less keep up with posting! We wouldn't want that! You do whatever you need to do to cope. We will miss your presence here, but we empathize 1,000% and want you to focus on getting better. With God's help and your amazing family, we know you'll be back soon. I hope that our prayers bolster your spirits. 🙏🏻We'll ask the Divine Physician to handle the rest. :) God bless you.

  • Take care of yourself. Check in when you can. I get digest emails of messages and check in when I can, maybe something similar would help you not be overwhelmed.

    I am so sorry that you're feeling this way these days. I will keep you in my prayers!

  • Rih1974, Rob, it's Fancy1959. First and foremost take care of yourself. I totally understand where you are at right now. Although we might be experiencing different symptoms my Ms and my depression overwhelmed me for the last 6 to 8 weeks. Reading your post has inspired me to start writing again because I understand that when we feel as if we're not in this or on this journey alone we become stronger and we are more capable of handling the bumpy path MS leads us down. I'll send many prayers your way and anytime you need to lean on someone you know we are just a post away. God bless you and yours and know that we truly care. Until we speak again do what makes you stronger and feel better.

    Thought of you today (and your comment about God's word) when I read Romans Chapter 8 (esp. 17-39). I imagine that's already one of your bookmarks, but I'm going to add it to mine!

  • Prayers for you Rob , definitely you do what you need to ,

    Prayers for God to bless you !
