Partner diagnosed with MS
So Penny Arcade friends, I’m looking for a little advice. I’m hoping the wide awesome net this place casts has people who can give me some help. My longtime girlfriend (10 years) has been having strange health problems off and on for a while now and as of yesterday, we finally got a diagnosis:
She’s going to seek a second opinion, because that’s only prudent, but the neurologist was pretty definitive. She will be started on medication just as soon as she gets a blood test for ... it was either kidney or liver function I *think*... to make sure the meds would be ok, while she sets that up.
I guess what I’m looking for from you folks is: How can I, as her partner, help? What can I expect and how can I support her in this difficult time? What will she need from me?
