It seems that since I have been going through this,everyone that were my friends have suddenly disappeared from my life. It is like I have fallen off the earth. Funny how the word mental illness can clear a room. If it weren't for my partner I would have no one. I spent my life caring for others, granted it was to deflect from my own turmoil, but none the less I was there for them.
My MS family is by far the best support that I have. I know that you guys have experienced the same. It is like I woke up today and finally realized that these people have vanished. We have much work ahead of us to educate everyone.
Very sobering indeed,
