Ok, am newly diagnosed (RRMS) and getting my head round it. I have told those who I know well and have supported me both in my family and at work. Everyone who I informed either knows someone with MS or has a relative/friend who lives next door to someone with MS so it was quite refreshing when I informed one of my colleagues who is a social worker/child psychologist for her to say “You’re the only person who I know has MS!” and was more interested in sitting with me looking at this website rather than giving me their opinion/experience of others.
I know people are well meaning but knowledge is power more than my Brother’s Mother in Law who lives next to a man who has MS!
Sorry, Rant over!
