WHEN I GOT THE NEWS FROM MY DR THAT I DID HAVE MS, I BROKE DOWN HARD. MY SON 12 YRS OLD WAS WITH ME AND HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG, I PULLED MYSELF TOGETHER AND TOLD HIM I WOULD TALK TO HIM ABOUT IT LATER. 2 DAYS LATER, I SAT THE BOYS DOWN, MY OTHER SON IS 13, AND EXPLAINED THAT I HAVE MS, THEY HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS, SO I TRIED TO EXPLAIN WAS IT IS, WE LOOKED IT UP ON THE COMPUTER TOGETHER AND READ DIFFERENT CASES, I TRY TO BE VERY HONEST WHEN THEY ASK QUESTIONS, AND THEY ARE TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THAT I WILL NOT BE THE SAME AGAIN, BUT ITS SOOOOO HARD FOR CHILDREN TO UNDERSTAND. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY GOOD IDEAS ON HOW THEY CAN UNDERSTAND, I STILL DONT THINK THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT MS IS, IN FACT ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE NOT SURE WHAT IT IS.
