Since my diagnosis I’ve been really positive, apart from the odd wobble here and there.
Over this weekend, having told my friend who I haven’t seen for over a year, and me talking among other friends who have known since my diagnosis, I’ve had the following comments:-
“We’ll all chip in for a wheelchair!” – that was a serious comment…
“Will your work care for you later down the line?”
“I have a tingly hand, I’m worried I have it – maybe I caught it off you?” …the last part was meant to be in jest…
Now I feel my positivity is being battered down. I know some people don’t know the ins and outs of MS and some comments I try to laugh off but had these in such a short space on time, I am needing a positivity boost 🙁
I think my friend’s instant shock when I told her also made me feel a bit pants. I suppose I shrug it off and say it’s no big deal. Maybe I shouldn’t? Maybe I need to realise it is??
Sorry, bit of a crap post. I can’t even put into words what I’m feeling right now. I just want to say to people I’m not a victim and I am okay.
Should I have a talking to myself and be more a realist??
This makes no sense, just had to write it down.
