I was diagnosed with MS in 2007 and I immediately told my daughter, who was 6 at the time. Now I kinda regret it because 1.she acts like she forgets everytime I don't have any energy or am in pain and 2. gets really worried when I remind her about my disease. I thought that maybe acting like I'm ok all the time would help, but now any time I need a nap she looks concerned. Plus its hard to fake it when you have a disease like MS. How I can help my child not be so worried when I am sick?
P.S. I am participating in the MS Walk here in Atlanta on May 15. I would really appreciate in donations you ladies could make. Visit http://main.nationalmssociety.org/goto/k... to donate or learn more...all donations are tax deductible.
