My wife had MS for 30 yrs. I was her caregiver for all the years. The last 15 were pretty intense. I felt a sense of relief for the both of us when it was over. Trying to move on is like driving a truck in the ocean. I'm hoping that I will meet others that can share experiences and the difficulty in moving on. My heart goes out to everyone on this site and I'm sorry we all had to go through this kind of thing.
