I had such a variety of response to when I have told family, friends & coworkers I have MS. My old supervisor cried, my new supervisor assured me that it's no big deal, she has a friend from HS that has it and is doing great. A few asked questions about what exactly is it, and is it contagious. My mother's response was the only one that really outraged me. She replied, "I always knew there was something wrong with you". Yes, my mom was always yelling at me when I was growing up, "What is wrong with you????" As an adult, I realized her parenting skills were why I felt insecure, like something was wrong with me, depressed, etc. I changed my life, I became confident and enjoy who I am. I look at the situation now and think, "yeah mom, you were what was wrong with me. MS is part of me now, but there is nothing 'wrong' with me.." I've accepted that I have MS and it may cause issues, but I am not allowing it to take over my life!
