Ok so I’m very paranoid about this! Firstly you have my permission to laugh and rip me for this but anyway I shall start at the beginning.
I have been diagnosed 4yrs now and I must say I have been quite good at blaging my way through my condition. Well until a little while ago!
I met my partner just before my diagnosis and I can honestly say that he has been fantastic. I have met his family on countless occasions and get on with them all But when I have met them it has been individually or couple’s. I was invited to a very special family meal in a big arse kissin restaurant in the centre of Edinburgh (the Balmoral hotel).
I was a bit apprehensive 2 say the least coz it’s the first time I have met them all collectively.
So everyone arrived and all was well. Wine was flowing and jokes were cracking I was instantly relaxed. Starters went down a treat and so 2 the main course.
I made a fatal mistake I ordered steak pie!
The said steak pie arrived looking amazing so I promptly tucked in. Oh btw I was sitting adjacent to my future mother in law.
So I had a hand spasm and flicked the said steak pie over my white haired white blouse wearing future mother in law. I was mortified as most of them didn’t know about my MS. I excused myself and went for some fresh air. My partners mum followed me out and bless her she said it’s ok Paul I don’t think anyone noticed ( while picking stew from her eyebrows)
So to cut a short story long! I have another get together @ the weekend and my question is how the hell do i avoid the same?
