Video transcript

Grace: What does multiple sclerosis look like?

 

Person: What does it look like?

 

Grace: Yeah, what do you think it looks like?

 

Person: No idea.

 

Person: Is it something to do with the muscles?

 

Person: People might have, would they have like, perhaps difficulty walking or being a bit mobile.

 

Person: If you see people in later stages, it’s confined to wheelchairs.

 

Person: I’ve seen on the streets quite a lot people who’ve had nervous breakdowns where they would hit themselves in the middle of the street.

 

Grace: Would it shock you if I told you that I had multiple sclerosis?

 

Person: It would, I did not know.

 

Person: It would, because you look so fit and well.

 

Person: Surprising, but not shocking.

 

Person: Well, just seeing you here, yeah, yeah.

 

Person: Yeah, I wouldn’t believe it, yes.

 

Person: Yes, I’m surprised, but it comes and goes doesn’t it?

 

Person: It’s like nothing you can see, from what I’m aware.  Like, anyone can have it, but I guess then it doesn’t always manifest itself obviously.

 

Person: Yeah, I think without a research or a conversation you maybe would never even know.

 

Grace: Yeah.

 

Person: And you would just think a person is, I don’t know, sloppy or forgets things just because she is or he is unorganised.
