First, Welcome to TIMS!!!
This is a great place to be for info about MS.
IMHO, I think (and my wife Kim who has MS would agree) that it's important to not be over protective. If you think about all the things you can do as say ...... a pie-chart. Many MS'ers find, over time that they can't do the whole pie and it's disturbing. Clearly, if you were recurringly reminded of something that you could not do as well as you once did, it could get annoying. I'm guilty. "Can I help you?", ""Let me do that", or the classicly well intentioned, "I don't want you to get stressed out over it". When your life is down to half a pie chart of things you can do, You want to do them with pride in yourself that you have these things you can do well. It's not healthy to allow others to take over the tasks that you once had command over. Like I said, I'm guilty and it's been hard for me to learn to --- not help. But, honestly, you need to give your spouse as big a pie chart as they want to try. It's important.
If he is still working, let him be.
What meds is he on? How affected is he? What kind of MS does he have? There is a lot you can do that the doctor won't tell you. Poke around here and you'll see that knowledge is your best weapon in this. Choosing to be informed and to learn will carry you and your relationship far. It's important.
It would be really nice to be able to put links in here
If I have included a bad link, google the word "Scholar", click link for "Google Scholar". Search for the name of the paper and author in Google Scholar.
