Thanks folks, I appreciate your very kind thoughts and wishes.

More bad news though, I reckon oor lad's got the same illness as his Mum had cos the early signs that I know so well are very apparent.

I think he also knows as we've talked about it and he was also a witness to his Mum's early symptoms as he was around 16/17 at the time. His new fiancé - who happens to be a very, very intelligent lass and also in the caring profession with some experience of these illnesses - also guessed that it might be summat similar.

His last "episode" happened about four or five weeks ago, (the third that I know of) but this time it involved a trip to casualty after he sort of zombied out and being diagnosed with migraine, my blood ran cold with foreboding - exactly the same symptoms and diagnosis as my Anne had at almost the exact same age.

It gets worse. His lass being a smart cunt (in the nicest way possible), being very worried about Craig and when both visiting me two weeks ago, questioned me relentlessly about Annes's symptoms in the early days. Well, I tried to avoid the issue cos my lad was there although he was sleeping and I also didn't want to drag up bad memories and depress myself, but eventually gave in and admitted that the symptoms were similar, she persisted for ages asking, "how similar? I finally relented and said, "exactly the same".

Well, the floodgates opened. Her first, then I followed soon afterwards.

The same day they left me the shite hit the proverbial, I guess the horror of reality had occurred to my son's lass - she adores Craig but I reckon she could visualise the rough road ahead if she stays with him. She was there before my Anne passed away and met her in the, so called "care home", it's not nice seeing a person with primary progressive MS for the first time - very fucking scary in fact.

They've had a very rough time this past wee while since that night, his lass hitting the bottle with trying to cope with the shock and oor lad phoning me telling me he's almost at the end of his tether...what a mind fuck.

Craig has been very unsuccessful with girls, I think primarily because he was always too honest and admitted to his girlfriend at the time that he didn't want kids. That's anathema to most girls whether they want kids or not. Now he has a very valid reason not to have any. I wonder if he ever suspected the possibility of his carrying the MS gene?

Anne and I were lucky, we met and married young 16 and 20 respectively, had our kids young, starting at 17 and 21 and finishing at 26 and 30, also respectively - which meant we had many happy and relatively carefree years together before illness reared it's ugly head. Unfortunately, oor lad hasn't got that as he's now nearing 40.

To say I'm devastated would be an understatement, there's no word to explain what I'm feeling.

How much more can a broken heart take?

Sorry for whining on lads, but you're the only cunts I can talk to that'll listen and pretend to be interested! tonguetonguetongue

I can't think of anything that will make you feel any better Ray. My thoughts and sympathies go with you and your family mate.
