If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Any teachers out there

Hi!

I noticed in the uk a lot of teachers diagnosed with ms, my conclusion is being a teacher is very stressful.

Stress was a massive factor which led I believe to my diagnosis.

I dont know if teaching is stressful where you are but it would be interesting to know if it is. how many are members of this forum.

Just a yes would do.

I am a teacher and I have MS. I don't know whether stress was related to my condition, but I know that teaching is a very stressful occupation. It can be very rewarding, but it is always very stressful.

Hi!


I had two teens living in my house, the thought of a class full, terrifies me.

In addition to the stress teachers are exposed to lots of viruses and bacteria in heated and often poorly ventilated classrooms.

Ade,

That is a good point that is. Especially Epstein Barr virus. By the way you dont happen to suffer from fatigue.

Just trying to dispel a theory of mine yeah!

Teachers in their first few years tend to be often sick as they are exposed to many bugs. Then teachers seem to develop a really good immunity. Kids sneeze and cough openly and generally share their bugs around. Generous of them!!!! Perhaps this leads to MS somehow - who knows??
