I was dx'd with MS 6 months after getting married in 2001. I started out with Copaxone for 3 years but felt like a pin cushion. I switched to Avonex. My Dr. put me on antidepresants and recently changed that to Cymbalta (90mg). My husband has been supportive up until the past 2 months. He has to repeat things to me 2 and 3 times and is getting very frustrated with me. He thinks it's from the meds I'm on. I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm doing pretty good until he starts picking on me and making my nerves go nuts. My 88 year old father passed away in October, buried him at Arlington National Cemetery just before Xmas (it was full honors therefore took 3 months) and that's been really hard for me too......I don't know what to do..Thanks to everyone out there who reads this!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
