Q :
My husband was recently diagnosed with MS. He has never dealt with "stress" very effectively; now it is so much worse. We feel as though we have to walk on eggshells around him, and that is hard, as we have young children. He even makes comments such as "You better be good, I'll be dead soon." This is heartbreaking to us, and he just doesn't see that. Any advice to help him see? I know he is the one we have to be worried about, but he could have very little disability, and we are missing out on life so much already with this attitude.
A :
Initial responses to a diagnosis of chronic illness have a lot to do with an individual’s personality and past experience. If your husband has never dealt with stress effectively, it is not surprising that he is greatly challenged by the recent diagnosis. Unfortunately, it is often loved ones who bear the brunt of anger, frustration, and sadness of the person who is responding to his or her own fears of an unknown future.
Some times it takes a professional or someone who is not personally involved to provide the education, counseling, and help that are needed. The MS Society is a good place to start. They might have support groups, peer counseling or a list of counselors/psychologists who understand the psychological impact of MS on individuals and family members.
It is important that you support your husband in any way that you can and be flexible and forgiving during this time. However, it is important that he take responsibility for his behavior and appreciate the impact it is having on the children. Encourage him to share his thoughts and feelings with you. The sooner he starts to talk about his fears and concerns the better it will be for the entire family.
If your husband does not respond to either of these requests, it is time for you to be more assertive. Assertiveness means being able to tell him in a non critical way what the family needs from him and in turn, what he wants from the family in order to cope and make healthy adjustments. If you feel unsure of how to be assertive, you might benefit from support and help on how to open lines of communication.
Until your husband is ready to ask for help, your options are limited. This is a very difficult time for him but equally difficult for you in a different way. While his behavior is not uncommon, it is unhealthy for the family if it continues.

Accelerated Cure Project
Genetic researchers in Syracuse, NY have identified gene variants
  that may affect severity of MS. They were trying to confirm previous
  findings that linked genes in the CCL cluster on chromosome 17 with
  a higher risk of MS, but those results couldn't be
  replicated. However, when they analyzed the data for severity, they
  found variants in the CCL8 gene that were more frequent in subjects
  with "severe" MS compared with subjects with "mild" MS. CCL genes
  play a role in the immune response, so these results suggest that
  factors that influence immune responses may also influence the
  severity of MS.
  This study is of particular interest to us at Accelerated Cure
  Project because the samples used included DNA samples from our
  sample and data repository. In fact, this is the first published
  journal article that mentions our repository as a source of
  samples. We expect there will be many more!
