    Default Partner with a disability

    Statistically there must be lots out there but I feel very alone. DH has multiple sclerosis and it's awful. There's no other way to put it. I'd love to chat with others in a similar situation as I've found it really hard discussing parenting and general life with people who don't have similar barriers.

    Sorry OP, I'm no help, but hopefully you can find some others on here who have had similar experiences. It must be really tough and a bit isolating without being able to talk to people in similar circumstances.

    I would google 'support for partners of ms' (I just did and lots of links pop up), organizations often have separate, private/secret Facebook groups to chat with others in similar circumstances. This is how I found my stillbirth support groups, I'm sure there'd be something similar for you.

    OP, as a PP said I'm sure you could google for a forum that has your needs. Also what about some of the doctors/nurses that he deals with, often they do know of support groups for families. Good luck, I hope you find a good support group, I can understand life would be hard for you at the moment.

    *Hugs* OP. I hope you find someone here who can sympathise. My DD has ASD, and I am a LONG term suffer of Anxiety & Depression (different, I know) these two things combined are a big drain on my husband & I know it. I make a big effort to make sure he gets 'time out' with his friends often. I suggest joining a careers support network.
