If one of my brothers was diagnosed with something so horrible as MS, I would be doing the exact same they are doing. Because what they are doing is not trying to piss you off. They are grieving. Both of them have medical knowledge, which is a two edged sword. On one hand, it is good, because they understand the implications and the treatment. On the other, it is bad, because they understand the severity. If it were me, I would be clinging to my brother, because regardless of how long he had been married, I loved him first. Their "suggestions", while maybe not working for you and him, are probably their way of coping. They aren't trying to piss you off, or to piss him off. To cut them off and tell them to "back off" might be a quick fix, but it doesn't solve the problem. They are grieving for a brother whom they love.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
