I am single and am looking for someone to spend time with. Many times I meet someone that is how I am treated. I do use a walker, but why am I treated this way. I work with kids and they treat me better. It is just my imagination>
someone with a disability needs to start a dating service for people with disabilities...PLEASE someone needs to do this...so we can be with people who have a clue !!!
Many people do not understand what Multiple Sclerosis is. This is a big name with many faces and they are all different. Take time to educate people along the way and you'll be surprised! Stop putting pressure on yourself to meet someone and let that someone find you.
I think people look at us and see a walking talking diagnosis that scares them - if it happened to her . . .
I use a walker too and it is NOT your imagination. Kids think my walker is cool. ;)
Find someone else who is disabled and have coffee with them, they will understand and won't treat you like a leper. ANY disability will do.
I would have to say ignorance and lack of Education. What you don't know makes you afraid so rumors and rumors of rumors abound and we just have to educate people.
