Welcome, Jake to our little corner of the web!
As others have said, there are (too!) many of us here on the forum with spouses who have MS. We suffer, too, as Kronberg said.
This group has been a lifesaver for me. I consider the WSA to be my second family and have become friends with many here as well.
You're on the right track!
Here's some hugs in the meantime:

My Squirrel Alarm wants to welcome that adorable creature in your avatar, too.

Yep, lots of MS couples here. Welcome, Jake. You will find comfort here. And lots of poo expertise.
IS died of complications of a combo of MS, Type I diabetes, total paralysis, and pressure sores on March 30, 2012. Married 32 years + 1 day.
Welcome and glad to meet you Jake. Although I am not familiar with the struggles of MS, I know you will appreciate the outreach effort that this place provides. Just knowing that people understand and relate makes a huge difference. I find myself looking forward to coming here as a mental retreat of sorts. Visit often!
As you slide down the banister of life may the splinters never point the wrong way...Be who you are and say what you feel because those that matter don't mind and those that mind don't matter.
Glad you found us, as it is hard to find support for Spousal Caregivers.
We wish we all didn't have to find this place, but everyone here is wonderful and you make lifelong connections and friendships
Hope the job hunt turns up a good leaf soon and you adjust to California quickly.
