my brother was diagnosed three years ago with transverse mylitis. After his second episode of symptoms he was told it was ms. He went from a wheel chair to a walker to a cane. He was very determined to get better. The last 4 weeks have been very tough. His determination seems to be gone. He has stopped working out. He is whenever he is at work. After doing much research I went to him to discuss depression. After much persuation he finally called the dr. and got a perscription for an anti depressent which he does not want to take. His wife has gotten to the point wher she is not very supportive. Also through his depression he has, unadmittedly" stopped working out. As a result his legs have weakend and he has fallen several times. do you have any advice on how to deal with this situation
