As ms takes up most of our life/lives, do you find yourself becoming a lesser person?
At times , it seems that ms/health is the only thing that pervades our very being. I’m lost for fresh conversation with non sufferers at times. I feel like I’m becoming ‘That sick guy, who talks about his illness all the time’. I don’t though, it just feels like it.
It (ms) is involved so intrinsically with my life, affecting everything I do, or try to do. I feel like it has taken over the real ‘me’.
It’s got to the stage where I find it difficult to answer people about it, especially when they ask how I am. Even with those that have a genuine interest. I want to be regarded as ‘Pete’, not ‘Pete, that has MS’, or ‘Poor Pete’.
I suppose not being free to roam about doing anything you have a whim for, is a bit like being shackled and people notice the shackles, as you clink clank about.
This may be a bit of a ramble, but I have to make sense of my thought pattern at the moment, as it’s quite negative.
