Hi all, I have a sister who was diagnosed in 1998 but who now seems to be in denial about her condition. I meet a barrier each time I broach the subject and was wondering if anyone had advice. I understand that denial can sometimes be a mechanism to protect against the things we don’t want to deal with but my sister is now in a situation where she can barely walk. She talks of her condition in terms of the knock on symptoms rather than as MS. She is 53 years old and lives alone and is a private and isolated person by nature.
Is this a common approach for those coming (or should I say “not coming”) to terms with there situation?
