I was diagnosed 3 yrs ago with RRMS, and one of my
issues was people
speaking to me (again, people I have known for years) and me not understanding what they were saying. It was almost as if my brain could not
compute what I was hearing. (If that makes sense!!) I often had to ask them to explain themselves (and sometimes it was over the simplest of things).
Also, my speech can be a bit
off, I know what I have said but people look at me as if I
m talking gobble-de gook!! and say what did you just say`.
It is very frustrating, can be upsetting, can cause distress and can knock your confidence but if you have
true friends and family who accept you for who you are (warts and all) whether you have MS or not, don’t let it get in the way.
I have got to the point now, that I don’t care what people think, I don’t care what people say and to some extent I don’t mind if there is a joke to be had (by the selected few).
Hope this helps.
