Recently a thread on a secret multiple sclerosis FB group, caught my eye.
“Does anybody feel like their personality has changed with this disease? I don’t want to talk to anyone anymore, including my mom. Everyone annoys me! I hate that feeling. I used to be loving and caring. Now I’m just irritable and irritated!”
I really can relate to this, but not necessarily connected it to multiple sclerosis. To my surprise there were over 30 responses with unanimous agreement that others feel this way too. I simply thought I was being moody or bitchy and didn’t realize it can be a symptom of MS.
Sadly, there is not much in ways to correct this symptom, although some did say antidepressants have helped them.
Can you relate?
