Hi my partner has just been diagnosed with MS ever since hes gone to the pub everyday I'm accused of being a control freak if I txt or phone and I get accused of all sorts.
Instead of feeling sympathetic and understanding I feel resentful and cold towards him.
I'm ill myself please can you give me some advice all I want to do is cry.x

    Hi @hammiemad welcome to the community! I am sorry to hear what has been happening. I just want to reassure you that you're safe with us, do you think this is how he is coping with his recent diagnosis?

    Hi @hammiemad welcome to the community. I am sorry to hear this, how are you doing today? 
    You may find contacting the MS Society helpful, they have a helpline where you can receive support. It's open from Monday- Friday, 9am-7pm. Like Ami says you are safe with, please keep us updated and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.
