On behalf of the MS community, MS Reporter Cat asks Dr Rachel Davies if anything good has come in to her relationship as a result of having MS.
Is there anything good that has come into your relationship as a result of having MS?
Dr Rachel Davies There is actually, and even though it’s surprising to say ‘good’ and ‘MS’ in the same sentence, I think for myself and my husband we’ve become a bit more… we have become more considerate, more patient with each other, more empathetic. And I also think we learned, or we have appreciated much more the smaller things and focussed more on, you know, the things that make us happy that day and family and friends, and realising those are the important things, rather than the small little things that bubble along and irritate you.
