Singles dating and multiple sclerosis
There wasn’t much more to life than that for a teen, was there?Did the guy care if I was charitable and smart, or did he just like the fact that I was blonde and captain of the water polo team? Now at 36, dating is drastically different, and not just because of the modern evolution of technology. I was diagnosed with it at 33 years old, before I ever entered the single world a second time. Oh, young self…if only I knew back then how wrong I was.After all, I could not physically do what I did before Multiple Sclerosis attacked my body and caused a myriad of often intense physical problems to where I was not functioning that for much too many days of the week.I will call the man that I met David, just so that it is easier for me to tell you about him.I’m a mother now, divorced, with more baggage than an airline. It weighed heavily on my mind while contemplating divorce, namely the question of whether anyone would want me again. Sure, I feel the sting of the disease, and on a regular basis. There are times when my hand and arm get all tingly and weak for no apparent reason.One of those bags being stamped with two huge letters. Afternoons can be tough; I’ve been known to practically melt into the couch once p.m. And the heat…don’t even get me started on this blasted Arizona heat. Or we misread the instructions; I’m fairly certain the desert is meant as a place for those being punished. My point is that although I have issues I deal with regularly, I’m also a functioning person with just as much to give and love as anyone else.Talking about how you feel can help to relieve the internal stress that you can be feeling, that can contribute to making you feel depressed, lonely, anxious, angry, sad or however else youmay be feeling after Multitple Sclerosis changed your ways for us to be able to get a ride or have someone else attend the groups with us for us to be able to attend a support group on a more regular basis (this also assumes that our health is doing well enough for us to be able to attend a group.) Attending the support groups is often more beneficial and well worth the effort for us to physically be around people as much as we can.What do you need to do for you to have a better chance of meeting someone to develop a relationship with us, who can work with you, as far as your good days and bad days in dealing with your Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms? Develop some different kinds of social connects (both on-line and off-line).
Which leads me to my experience of sharing it for the first time. And besides, who is anyone to judge when everyone has something going on with them? I’ll admit, I’m work in progress when it comes to this, and I’m improving with each new dating prospect that comes my way.
I also felt that if I did not find a way for me to be around other people, where I enjoyed their company, I thought that I would not survive what I was going through at the time because of Multiple Sclerosis entering my life.
