Other MSers at work?

When I was dx’d back in ’84 I soon found out that there were another two MSers at work plus one other who was the wife of a colleague, so that made four of us from a very small sample size of around 50 I guess.

The others had kept quiet about their MS but when I revealed mine either they or someone else told me of the others.

I just wonder, if you are still working, are there any other MSers at your place of work? Just curious re numbers.

A bloke who worked at another company had a wife with MS. One of the regulars at the 2 pubs I used work at have it. One of the pubs was in my village and that bought the total of MSers in my village to 4. That I know about!

But, they reckon there’s 100,000 MS sufferers in the UK. A figure that hasn’t increased for years.

I’m glad it isn’t a growing problem – or is it?

@banksider I know of no one at work with ms however where I work have a number of customers who use the service that have it. I have not been open about myself as I struggle with coming to terms with it, so if I don’t speak about it then I can continue to deny it, other than on here obviously.
I also have a friend with ms and a friends sister and my cousins mother in law.. I’d say a total of 5.

@stumbler ok so taking into consideration the population then I do not think the sums add up really, I believe that more people have ms than is said. It would be nice to think it’s not a growing problem but I honestly think it is 🙁
