    My Mom Has Multiple Sclerosis

    It's hard. It's been difficult because I have to take care of my younger sister, and also my older sister who has down syndrome. My mom was a super mom and now because of her being sick she has trouble doing normal things, like folding laundry. It has really taken a toll on our...

    I'm so broken up. My dad has had Multiple

    Sclerosis for over 10 years, but this last year has been worse than the previous 1 combined. He's my rock and my strength. I admire him more than anyone else in the world. He is intelligent and kind and a good man. And now he's turning into someone I don't know. I can't talk...

    Exhausting

    The nights she cries and it comes through the walls are the worst. I can hear her sobs all night as I lay in bed. It's a sound of desperation and makes me want to cry with her. I used to check on her every once in awhile, just to make sure she was ok. I would stand by the door...

    My dad has been blind

    Hi so to start. when I was little my mom was

    very sick, the doc. couldn't figure out what she had, if God hadn't healed her she would have died. She had many good healthy years. But then about a year ago she got sick, and it triggered this sickness again. She gets really bad muscle spasms, they thought she had fibromyalgia...

    Very Suddenly

    It all started on what was supposed to be a relatively happy Friday. I was taking the last final of my college career (history), and I thought I heard my phone vibrate several times. Since I was in the middle of an exam, I obviously couldn't answer my phone. As soon as I finished...

    Why?

    My mom has been battling multiple sclerosis and it's recently feeling unfair that not only does she have to have her life taken away from her as she is too sick to even be herself but me and my family are suffering too. I miss the days my mom would drive me to school, cook...

    My mom has kidney disease.

    She was diagnosed with it when I was eleven (sixteen now) and after she had my little sister. I'm one of five kids now and although everything is okay with her right now I still worry a lot. Like if she's gone for too long I worry she's in the hospital. I know she's not going to...
