MS and bipolar

I was finally dx'd with MS a year ago. The dr thinks I've had it since about 35. I'm 62 now. I also have bipolar and have been treated for that for years. I think some of the reason the MS went unnoticed was I blamed the balance and shaking problems on the bipolar meds. Like no longer being able to ride a bike or paint and draw. I also have had ADHD for years ...

Forgive me if this is in the wrong location

I always find it hard to talk about things with strangers and I sometimes tend to ramble so I apologize in advance in cause I do.

I sometimes wonder why things happen and I don't like thinking why me but sometimes I cannot help it, like today I am reminded of when I first found out I had MS and a few months later I find out my long term Girlfriend started cheating on me ...

Your spirituality and MS

I know we all have different beliefs on this forum but was wondering if everyone could list off things that helps them cope spiritually/religiously on rough days. I got my official MS diagnosis 11 days ago, im only 23 years old and even though it has been caught early and I'm blessed, I have days where I fear my future and think that I'll die of complications more than likely, and that anyone I pursue ...

Not sure if this is the right place for this post

I'm finding that I get really angry really fast over just stupid little stuff, that wouldn't bother me before. It takes me a minute to realize what's happening, and step away and calm down - what is this? Anxiety, another mental issue? I need answers - I have two small children - 1 year and 2 & a half. I don't want to yell at them for something that's going wrong inside of me. I ...
