Even though i’m not very active on this website, from time to time this site gives me strength and a sense of community. So thank you all for that. 🙂
I’ve had MS for 2 years now and i try to hide the symptoms as much as i can because i don’t feel comfortable talking with others about it.
It took me 1 year to tell my mom.
Last year i resumed studying and i’m currently working on my thesis. I’m taking it slow because history tells me, too much stress leads to relapse.
However in the last two weeks many plans including my thesis are breaking down and stress is increasing at work and university.
This led to me making many mistakes and repeating them (Einsteins thoughts on insanity :P).
Now i think my supervisor is starting to notice my cognitive issues (memory&focus) because we started meeting on a weekly basis to discuss research papers.
I’m thinking about just telling him that i’m not lazy, stupid or not listening on purpose. However i don’t want any difference in our relationship, just some understanding.
I would like to hear your thoughts on that.
Do people you are in contact with know about your MS?
Are you generally open about your MS?
Or does only the closest circle know about your condition?
