I read that as… ‘Tranny of the week’ ,thanks for making me smile, I’m kind of disappointed now that its not
Happy new year. I think one can over think things. Its a good quality to be able to see things from others perspectives. I personally am totally open and honest about my MS, and if I feel like i’m whinging then I probably am.
I think some people are fearful of disability, I don’t think they don’t like us. It challenges their ideologies maybe?
I’m sure that if we hold the flag of MS above your head in a negative way then thats what you will get back from others.
Good questions, as I try not to appear incompetent/struggling at work through fear of being judged. My colleagues are really good and let me get on with whatever I’m doing and if I need help I’ll ask for it, then they kindly oblige, but not had any negative feedback or bitching that I’m aware of.
I also don’t think we are self centred bunch, we do have a chronic disease to live with, so sometimes it may appear we are obsessed as we try to figure things out. The only time I’m MS obsessed is when I’m feeling its affects/sick. Then I come on this forum to share with people who understand.
Actually, I was speaking to my brother earlier and he said something about feeling like you are only just keeping your head above water in some social situations. Outwardly you look fine but beneath you are doing everything to keep your head above water. Anyway, that gave a cue to start waffling about MS…anyway, now I’m waffling (been in bed ill for 3 days, so its nice to cyberchat).
