What makes your eyes roll?

A lot of people don’t understand what MS actually is and how it feels, it’s easy for non-MSers to say the wrong thing.

“Yeah, I get quite tired too..” “You don’t look like you’re ill”

We asked our Twitter followers what things people have said that’s made their eyes roll the most. We made a short vid with some of the most popular ones.

Have they missed anything? What makes your eyes roll? 🙄

The usual, being mistaken for being pi..ed as a next at 8 o’clock in the morning, people saying you don’t look ill and the number of people who look at the mobility scooter and say “do you really need that” I don’t get that when I’m in the electric wheelchair, but as it has no basket on the front I tend not to use it when I’m doing a bit of shopping👹😍

I saw this on Facebook yesterday and left a comment, what really irritates me are the questions people ask, such as, “How are you?”, “Feeling any better?”… I know they mean well and it’s polite but, seriously.

@peterfrancis, I so agree. The conversations are always awkward for me. “(Them)How are you?” “ (Me)fine thanks.” Thinking we can move on from my health to the rest of life and the world but no….”(them) oh, great! You’re better then! Glad you got better!”
Argh. Eye roll.

I fear that them moving on to talk about other things would be even more of a Headache, for example, whatever crap is being sold to the masses on TV as worthwhile entertainment, usually with Simon Cowell’s name stamped all over it.

@peterfrancis, point well taken. Or worse, tell me about the diet they heard would cure MS.

LOL!, Oh my… Not had the Diet one thrown at me yet.
My Uncle thought that Physiotherapy would get me walking fully and unsupported again… how wrong he was, lol.

They mean well, may be just have nothing of any relevance to say, so feel the need to resort to sharing their “Knowledge”… Based on seeing a Doctor on TV once.
