😉 @stumbler – talking sense as ever @007Hud – that wishful thinking @ninita – MS will only be a part of your jouney with him (even some people with MS can be arseholes) so you do right to find out the official descriptions of MS, & read the posts around here for the inside scoop on how we think & feel about the condition, best of luck, love him for all he is, & don’t feel guilty dumping him if he turns out actually a jerk, disabled or not a jerk is a jerk. We are in the beginning stages of dating 😉 I am reading a lot about MS. This kinda scares me but I am willing to not let that define him. ninita : you got together cuz you fancied each other right?He and presumably you, are looking for a date/ girlfriend/ lover, not a nurse.MORE: Seven things people with MS want you to know about the disease.Finding someone who is caring and compassionate is key to a successful relationship.Hey everyone Since my first symptoms about 5 years ago and diagnosed about 3 years ago my dating life has gone basically nonexistent, I am 22 years old male and because of MS my social life has went down hill, hardly ever go out so it is difficult to find someone to date and have a relationship, like where am I going to meet someone??Since first getting MS I have had very few dates/interactions are whatever you want to call it and was seeing someone for a few months but that ended about 2 years ago and I have had nothing since.
I'm absolutely crazy about him & I want to be better informed without putting all the burden on him to educate me. Hi I am married to a very wonderful man who was diagnosed about 3 1/2 yrs ago. I don't mind because I love him to death but just wanted you to know it's not easy. He at some point in his life may need you to be his caretaker... The one man that I fell in love with, and the man of my dreams, my all-American bad ass boy, that drives chopped cars, who's responsible, has a great career, a family man, and a great lover and kisser (of course)=p has MS!?!?!?
Other people acted like if I couldn't do what they could do that I wasn't worth talking to.
I had not really felt like a person for much of the first 2 years after I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, because the doctors and other people around me acted like I was a constant "sick patient" that they were just visiting out of pity more than because they really were concerned about me as a person.
The most important thing is that you bring it up whenever you feel comfortable doing so, even if it’s on a first date.
Sebastian’s parting tip is to not let MS define who you are.
