I’m just wondering how your friends and employers or people at work reacted when you told them you had MS. So far I have only told my family, I’m afraid the people I work with won’t understand and will either 1) act like it’s no big deal because they don’t know how serious the disease is or 2) overreact because they think it’s deadly.
I’ve been afraid I might go through a bad relapse again soon and will be unable to work and want to let the people I work with know but I’m scared it will backfire. They’ve made jokes a few times about how I’m always tired so I want to be able to explain why but I’m also scared they’ll just think I’m making excuses. I’m also afraid they’ll get angry at them for hiding it from them for so long.
I thought of maybe asking my boss for coffee one day and telling him then, but I don’t know how he’ll react. He’s a pretty understanding person but again I don’t know how much knowledge on MS he has.
