Hi.Putting it to the back of your mind or forgetting it for the day doesn’t mean that you haven’t accepted your diagnosis.
I do the same thing.My MS is pretty well ‘under control’ with medication.I try not to think about my MS too much though,as I don’t see the point.It has impacted quite strongly on my life,as I am off-sick long term.At the same time,I look completely well -I know that I’m very lucky.I was diagnosed in 2006.After my diagnosis,for a long teie,the first and last thing I thought of during the day was MS.That is no longer the case now,I’m pleased to say.A year isn’t really a very long time you know.
I don’t know if this view interests you,but I also dislike hearing people talk about fighting MS.Fighting MS means fighting against myself,which is something I can’t do.It’s part of me now.
Also people saying ‘I might have MS,but it doesn’t have me.’.Really?
Of course it has me.
Take care,Brenda x
