Has anyone ever been accused of getting a bad attitude during flare ups?

Has anyone ever been accused of getting a bad attitude during flare ups?

A friend would get upset with me because if she offered to help me, like after falling, i would tell her i was fine and i could get things done on my own. She even said i got mean or snapped at other people.

support group

support group

I'm not sure who I ask that question. I do not have green card and insurance. Can I come to the support group?
My mood is very dark lately. I quarreled with my husband because of my work. I want to help my family, but I get very tired. In the evening I’m shaking and walking with difficulty. My husband does not want me to work. He told me many unpleasant words. We reconciled that evening and he said that he was sorry that he told me all this ... But in my heart it is very hard. I need to see the… read more

It lasts from a few seconds to minutes just depends It's gone on for… read more

Lesions

Lesions

My MS nurse told me that provided someone has been diagnosed with MS, the number of lesions does not equate to the number of relapses or problems experienced. I thought there was a direct correlation between the two but am being told MS is not comprehendable like that. People with one lesion could be in a bad way and people with 10 could be fine. Thoughts?
