Hi folks - my first visit here. I have MS - DX'd now over 10 years ago.
I was just wondering - anyone have issues with friends not understanding the difficultes of MS - and especially the cognitive problems?
I had a disagreement with a close friend - she hurt my feelings, and I got angry. Sure , I over reacted. After things cooled off, I apologised. I tried to explain that sometimes this happens, and I can't always controll it. She basically said that isn't good enough; I need to learn to controll it - put systems in place... and wasn't I just playing on the 'I have MS' ??? This was two weeks ago - and since then it has really bothered me. I hate having MS. I never mention it to anyone. Even when in a lot of pain I don't mention it. For me life has to go on and I do the best with what each day brings.
SO - is it just me, or should I expect more from a 'friend?...
