It’s been two years and my roommate still makes an effort to remain ignorant about MS. I tried to help him understand by talking, sending articles, and the fact that I tremble non stop and fall at every opportunity doesn’t seem to phase him. Just now he told me that he ran into someone I know and told them the reason I don’t go out much anymore is because I have the winter blues. I said “what?? Winter blues aren’t causing lesions and myelin sheath degeneration”. The effort he puts in to being oblivious is astounding. I’m livid, frustrated and feel continually devalued.
