I am a 35 year old house wife raising 4 children, ages(11,8,3,2). I have worked hard my whole life - starting working when I was 15 stopped working three years ago to raise the 2 suprises in our life...
I was lucky my mother-in-law was able to watch the older two when they were little but because of her health, unable to watch the little ones full or part time. I have been looking for work for the last 6 months because like most Americans, money has gotten very tight. I have not even got a call back.
I have just recieved my MS diagnosis. Now I worry that if I attempt to work and take care of my family that I won't be able to do it all. The fatigue is the worst thing - like just taking care of the little ones means naps for all of us during the day.
I haven't been able to drive for a week (because) my right leg feels like its just dead weight. I don't know what to do next! I feel so scared and like most momma's, I am the glue in my family.
