I have been with my current partner for 6 months and he has been diagnosed with RRMS very recently. He has several symptoms before this but none apparent at the moment. I do not know how to react to the news, what does this mean in terms of a future relationship and what are the changes I should probably expect?
He takes daily medication to reduce the likeliness of having a relapse but as I can't see any visible symptoms and he has never had severe problems previously- should I be expecting him to go downhhill or is there a chance he will remain stable
I would like to be able to support through this, but need some more information on how the disease can progress. I know it is individual but I am really struggling to cope with the uncertainty and potential of illness. I have been a carer for my parents all my life and I am not sure how to handle a chronic illness when im already so worried. Is there likely to be a big change in our relationship and what should i be doing to support when he isn't currently sick. please could someone advise me?
