‘You shouldn’t breed’

Anyone else get highly f*cked off when people spread misinformation about the genetic link in MS?
Plus the idea that a parent with MS would be less than and is selfish for wanting to have children!?

I have enjoyed my life, I am still enjoying my life at 29, 2 years post diagnosis. Had my parents had a crystal ball, I’m pretty sure they would have still have had me.

What is this ableist crap! 😠

Hi i think some people are stupid that’s a nice way of putting it! when I was first diagnosed so many friends said I would have to start eating better because I was a vegetarian!! I wanted to smack them, so don’t listen to other people do what you want, think my daughter would rather have me with ms than not.

@louise_christie , it is crap, isn’t it?

We’re just like the naysayers really, we’ve both got incurable conditions. Ours is called MS, there’s is called ignorance!!!

Everything happens for a reason dude.
Even my neuro recommended I not have kids, mainly bc of my fatigue, but what happens will happen. It pisses me off when people think imma pass it on, ultimately, ignorance is bliss..

Unfortunately, people can’t seem to understand the difference between ‘genetic’ and ‘hereditary’…. 🤦🏻‍♀️

This makes me so mad am the only one in my family that has ms no one else has it or maybe had it before there was testing for it. Especially when they then mention my girls could get it n I kindly remind them it only increase their chances slightly the same as walking across the road getting hit by a car (rant over)
