I just joined this website a few days ago and would like to first just say hi to anyone who reads this. I am 27 years old and was just diagnosed with MS a little over 2 years ago. I have had a terrible time with dealing with it. I lost my job at the time due to MS, and my girlfriend at the time was scared to be with me anymore. She stuck around but our relationship just wasn't the same after my diagnosis. We eventually broke up about six months ago. I left her because it seemed as though she felt trapped or obligated to be with me out of pity. I have also sunk into a major depression and feel anxious at times. I barely hang out with my friends and I have become very antisocial. I know my friends and family want to support me and I know they are trying their best, but I don't think they understand how serious MS can be. I just want to get my life back on track because I miss my friends and family but can't bring myself to go around them anymore. To top it all off, all my friends are married now(which I am very happy for them) which makes me feel kind of like a third whell even though I know they don't care if I hang with them. I just feel like an intruder. I just need some advice on how to cope with this better so that I can get my friends, family, and my life back.
