MRobertson71 Posted October 5, 2008 Report Share Posted October 5, 2008 Hello, Four years ago, I was diagnosed with MS. At that time, I weighed 280lbs and thought life couldn't get much worse. The two years that followed were had hardest but best times as I lost 140lbs through healthy eating and exercise and I was lucky enough to join a drugs trial for MS - all seemed good. The year that followed, I probably felt the most positive and optimistic of any time in my life so far (I was 36 then). This year, I don't know what has happened - my MS is kept under control but I have overwhelming feelings of loneliness which has resulted in me putting on 30lbs so far. I hate the way I feel and I have been coping by overdosing myself daily with dihydracodeine pills (not massive overdoses, normally twice the daily dose). At first, the feeling from the pills seemed to help but now, I just feel despair. I can't face working, I can't face going out and I hate the shape I am becoming. I don't understand what happened, I used to love walking miles every day: I used to love going to the gym. I used to love eating healthily. Am I suffering from a mental health problem? Has anyone else felt so painfully lonely? How can I get over this? Thanks for any help you can offer. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
