So, I've told a few people I have MS.. ok maybe a dozen or so, and almost all of them come back a week or so later saying, "So what is MS anyways?" I can't help but think when I hear something is wrong about a friend or family member the first thing I do is research it online and find out what it is so I can ask questions or know how to offer to help. Now all the people that have asked me this are very computer literate. So why are people so apt to not ask up front, not read up if they don't ask? I end up explaining to them nerves are like wires, and the body attacks itself, pulling the outer protective coating off of the nerves causing crosswiring, and sometimes sparks.. lol.. They always look at me funny and cut the conversation short. I figure maybe they didn't look it up or ask sooner because they don't want to deal with the reality of it or believe there is anything wrong since I don't seem sick. I dunno. Do you get this often?

I'm interested to know how others...
